  • Kevin Hammond – ParaFormance: Finding Patterns of Parallelism
    2016-11-24 Erlang Central

    Featured Videos



    http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh/kevin-hammond   Emerging multicore and manycore architectures offer major advantages in terms of performance and low energy usage. We are already seeing designs for 100+ cores CPUs and 1000+ cores GPUs, offering significant potential for parallelism. However, programming models are lagging behind. Exploiting the potential of new parallel systems, even using higher-level programming models, is highly challenging. Fundamentally: "Parallelism is too ...

  • Tyler McMullen – Load Balancing is Impossible
    2016-11-24 Erlang Central

    http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh/tyler-mcmullen Load balancing is something most of us assume is a solved problem. But the idea that load balancing is "solved" could not be further from the truth. If you use multiple load balancers, the problem is even worse. Most of us use "random" or "round-robin" techniques, which have certain advantages but are highly inefficient. Others use more complex algorithms like "least-conns," which can be more efficient but have horrific edge cases. "Consistent ha ...

    http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh/claudia-doppioslash   I will demonstrate how a complex application, an IDE for one of the visual PLC languages (Programmable Logic Controllers), can be built with Elm, and our experience of porting it to Purescript. The PLC programming language is compiled to BEAM files and runs in the Erlang VM in a distributed way. I will show how the client side is talking via Websockets with a Cowboy handler on the Erlang side. I will also give an overview of ...

  • Brian Troutwine – A History of Space Stations
    2016-11-23 Erlang Central

    Featured Videos



    http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh/brian-troutwine   Early spaceflight literature promised massive cities glittering in orbit, scrappy colonies on the Moon, routine trips to Mars and the asteroid belt. None of that has materialized. What we have accomplished instead is an elaborate 450 ton microgravity laboratory crewed by three and a solar system peopled with robots. No one has been to the Moon since 1972 and we've only just now begun to set hard dates with an ambition to humans reachin ...

  • Erlang on Rumprun Unikernel aiding the Microservices Architecture by Neeraj Sharma
    2016-09-26 Erlang Central

    Blog Featured



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2016/neeraj-sharma I am the author of porting Erlang to Rumprun unikernel. Rumprun unikernel can now run Erlang (Elixir or any BEAM VM based language) nodes in both isolated and clustered mode. Unikernels are special single address space software constructed by using library operating system. RumpRun unikernel is a great project which (in my view) opened possibilities to design in some unique ways while shifting away from the traditional ...
