COVID-19: community update & support

24.03.2020

LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted us all. We hope that you are safe and extend our thoughts and best wishes to everyone who is directly affected by the crisis. As these are unprecedented circumstances, we felt it was essential to work collaboratively with the community to ensure we are serving you effectively over the coming weeks.

In the interest of public health, physical conferences and meetups are being postponed and rescheduled. We pride ourselves on our connection to the community and will be adapting to the current events to find alternative ways to share, inspire and connect users of the BEAM.

We are aware that in the current climate, the role of digital media is changing. Some of you are likely to be using it primarily to stay-up-to-date with the unfolding events, others may be using it to stay connected socially, while others will be minimising contact with social media to avoid COVID-19 anxiety.

In the interest of reaching you on the right channels, with information you need, we wanted your feedback. We will be doing all we can to support the community with the digital channels available to us, including free virtual conferences, and Erlang Solutions' webinars, guides, and virtual meetups.

We'd love your input to ensure this is productive, useful and empowering for the community. Please fill out this survey before 31 March to tell us what content you'd like to see.

 

2020 EVENTS

THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL HEALTH CONCERNS ON CODE SYNC EVENTS

We have an incredible line-up of conferences for 2020, but due to the current global concerns around COVID-19, we have had to reconsider some of our plans.

We would love if you could fill out the survey mentioned above to help us understand your preferences for rescheduled events.

As this is a fast-moving situation, we recommend you keep up to date by signing up to our mailing list, checking back here, or following us on social media.

UPCOMING DIGITAL EVENTS

Over the coming months, Code Sync will be working together to ensure that there is still a forum for communal knowledge sharing, where we can learn from and inspire other members of the BEAM community.

We are looking into a series of virtual conferences. The first of these will take place on 3 April: Code BEAM Lite Virtual!

Code BEAM Lite Virtual is free for all to attend. We're thrilled to announce Jose Valim and Andrea Leopardi as our first speakers! The website is coming soon, opt in for email updates!

Our friends at Erlang Solutions are also going ahead with virtual events in the form of webinars and virtual meetups!
