Erlang Solutions, the leading provider of software and services based on the Erlang language, is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Marakana - an Open Source training company based out of San Francisco, California. Marakana is a privately held company providing extensive range of training services on open source software solutions and agile practices. This partnership will provide an increase in the accessibility of Erlang training courses to corporates and individuals looking for expert Erlang training. Erlang Solutions already runs introductory and advanced courses to its enterprise customers worldwide and this partnership will increase the availability of those courses.

Erlang Solutions & Marakana will jointly provide 3 day training courses called ‘Erlang Express’ & ‘Erlang OTP’. These courses will be suitable for those companies that want to train their employees or individuals interested in learning Erlang.

The Erlang programming language and middleware was designed to build massively parallel, scalable and fault tolerant systems uniquely suited for multi-core architectures and the Cloud. Erlang is employed in many different scenarios – from telecom exchanges, through instant messaging servers, HTTP servers and web frameworks, database engines and many more. It also powers the leading distributed database, Riak.

The proposed dates for the initial courses are as follows:

  •          Erlang Express- July 17-19
  •          Erlang Express- Sep 18-20
  •          Erlang OTP Express- Sep 23-25

More dates will be announced in due course.

Stuart Whitfield, CEO of Erlang Solutions said, “Erlang Solutions provides products & services based on the Erlang programming language and has been a pioneer in providing Erlang training courses. Marakana specializes in open source training; therefore this partnership is a perfect fit and natural extension for our goal of training more people in Erlang. The demand for Erlang programmers is high – probably outstripping demand in some countries - and will only get higher in the future. Our partnership with Marakana means our students will receive the highest standard of training in the industry in more locations and with more scheduling flexibility.”

“We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial partnership with Erlang Solutions,” said Marko Gargenta, CEO of Marakana. “We found a lot of common ground with Erlang Solutions, from the fact that both companies specialize in open source technologies to our similar beliefs in encouraging and supporting people in a company constantly to improve what they do professionally. Marakana strives to provide the highest training quality to all our students.”
