Erlang DSL session at QCon San Francisco

I'll be presenting "Domain Specific Languages in Erlang" at QCon this November. Hope to see many of you there.

Here's the abstract:
This is the only Erlang presentation you've ever seen that does not begin and end with concurrency.

Erlang turns out to have a number of properties that make it great for building Domain Specific Languages. - powerful parsing capabilities, runtime evaluation, and pattern matching are a few covered in this session. Along the way you may learn a thing or two about functional and concurrent programming.

Be prepared to get a little out of your comfort zone with a new syntax ... and a new way to beat your competition.

Good stuff!! Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the conference. Are you going to be publishing the slides or paper?

Sure, I'll post the slides back here after the talk.
