John Hughes awarded "Erlang User of the Year"

8 Nov 2007

At the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm, John Hughes received the tenth "Erlang User of the Year" award, and was presented with the traditional gift, a beautiful hand-carved Erlang logo made in wood by Kanevad in Gamla Link÷ping. The award recognises John's work on QuickCheck, his r˘le in attracting EU funding for Erlang-related research in the ProTest project, and his initiative to found the ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop, now in its sixth year, which has helped bring the industrial and academic functional programming communities together.

We are very proud that John has been honoured with this award from the user community.
