  • The route to the adoption of non-mainstream programming languages: lessons from adopting Erlang in online gambling & betting
    2017-06-15 bit.ly

    Blog Featured

    Introducing a new technology in an organisation is never easy, be it a fast growing gambling start-up or a Fortune 100 company. Alongside technical challenges, you need to deal with organisational, political and human factors. And if your company is politicised enough, you will have to dodge the vultures circling the project waiting for the spills so they can revert to their old ways (all within their comfort zone) just to say “I told you so.” http://bit.ly/2srKeE3 ...

  • Securing Erlang and Elixir applications through Moving Target Defense
    2017-06-15 bit.ly

    Thursday 29 June 2017 - 16:30 BST / 11:30 EDT / 08:30 PDT In this webinar, Alex Gounares, CEO at Polyverse, will explain how Moving Target Defense can be applied to make container environments impenetrable. Currently, security teams try to defend static infrastructure by trying to predict, detect, analyse, investigate and remedy attacks. This is expensive, time consuming, unwieldy and, moreover, ineffective. Moving Target Defense continuously changes the attack surface so hackers do not ...

  • Erlang and code style – Jesper L. Andersen – Medium

    Correct Erlang usage mandates you do not write any kind of defensive code. This is called intentional programming. You write code for the intentional control flow path which you expect the code to take. And you don’t write any code for the paths which you think are not possible. Furthermore, you don’t write code for data flow which was not the intention of the program. https://medium.com/@jlouis666/erlang-and-code-style-b5936dceb5e4 ...

  • Why We Use Erlang/OTP in æternity – æternity
    2017-05-29 aeternity.com

    Blog Featured

    I would like to start the series of blog posts describing engineering and technological approach to æternity blockchain implementation. Our tech stack happens to be pretty unified and is mainly implemented in Erlang/OTP language. This is where we begin. It is always debatable if certain technology is the best for a project. Pros and Cons should be covered in dedicated post on its own (and surely followed by heated discussion in the comments! ;) ) https://blog.aeternity.com/why-we-use-erlang ...

  • graphql-erlang: A GraphQL Server library – in Erlang
    2017-05-23 github.com

    Blog

    This project contains the necessary support code to implement GraphQL servers in Erlang. Its major use is on top of some other existing transport library, for instance the cowboy web server. When a request arrives, it can be processed by the GraphQL support library and a GraphQL answer can be given. In a way, this replaces all of your REST endpoints with a single endpoint: one for Graph Queries. This README provides the system overview and its mode of operation.   https://github.co ...

    Blog

    Welcome to the first edition of Elixir Alchemy, an e-mail series about Elixir by your friends at AppSignal. In this edition, we’ll learn how processes work in Elixir by deconstructing the Task module. Along the way, we’ll learn what processes are, how they communicate, and how crashes are handled. Let’s dive right in!   http://blog.appsignal.com/2017/05/18/elixir-alchemy-demystifying-processes-in-elixir.html ...
