Finishing up a whirlwind tour of the US West coast (QCon SF, Erlang Factory Lite LA, and a Cognitive Modeling workshop in Scottsdale), I am now waiting for a delayed BA flight at the Phoenix airport. Although I’ve spent as many days flying as I have on US soil, it’s been a great trip.

YOW 2010 Australia

Still, I can’t wait to get home and spend some time with the family. Soon, I’m off again. This time to Australia and YOW 2010. I will give a talk on Erlang, and also give two one-day tutorials on Erlang and OTP. I hope to see many new faces there. Come loaded with your trickiest questions, and I will do my best to answer them.

Gearing up for the experience Down Under, I joined my brothers in forming a Movember team. Movember is a great Australian initiative to raise funds funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. All you have to do is to grow a mustache during the month of November, and invite friends to make a donation (clicking that link, you can also judge how my mo is coming along).
