We are going to be joining-up with the folks from Distributed Computing Denver this round and also merging our November and December meetups due to the holidays.
I will update shortly with ore details on the presentations. Thank you all and have a great holiday week. Hope to see you on the 9th!
Elixir Phoenix Project – (Brad Rowe)
This talk covers the what and the why of the Erlang runtime system using Elixir, a programming language that compiles to Erlang bytecode. Rather than doing a hello world, the talk will instead explore the unique features of the Erlang runtime that set it apart from other runtimes, and when and why those features are worth the switch. The features Elixir provides above and beyond Erlang, especially when used for making software libraries with flexible, extensible APIs, are demonstrated using a walkthrough of phoenix framework, a Rails like web application framework for Elixir.
Discovery and Monitoring with Assimilation -
The Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring aimed at risk management and mitigation. It provides scalability into the 100K server range by fully and reliably distributing the work of discovery and monitoring. The Assimilation system is essentially a Command Control and Intelligence (C2I)system for your data center.
This talk will give a brief overview of the Assimilation project, and provide detail in the unique protocols and algorithms we use to enable this high level of work distribution. In addition we will touch on the security aspects of the protocol and importance of security to the project.
