What is it?
The Evening School of Erlang is a series of Erlang classes designed to bring together developers interested in programming in Erlang and companies who are looking to recruit bright Erlang developers all across the U.S.
How does it work?
The Evening School of Erlang is starting on the 19th of February and consists of two- hour evening classes which are conducted twice a week (every Tuesday and Thursday) over a four week period from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. Some classes might run till 9pm. The classes will be held on the following dates in February: 19, 21, 26, 28, March 5, 7, 12, 14. The classes include exercises which allow participants to put the theory into practice and these are automatically tested and assessed using the Erlang e-learning feedback tool.
At the end of the four weeks, participants will be able to take the Erlang Foundation certification exam at no additional cost. This will validate to future employers their knowledge of the Erlang language.

When & Where
The Erlang Factories and Erlang Factory Lites, run or co-organised by Erlang Solutions, are a way of bringing together the growing community that are using Erlang in many and varied ways, in order to showcase the language and its application to today's growing distributed environments. The erlang-factory.com website is also being used to aggregate slides and videos from other Erlang conferences which are not organised by us. In this way we are enabling knowledge flow within the Erlang community and the promotion of the Erlang language outside of it.
Erlang Factory conferences are dedicated to a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found at: #conduct.
