  • How to Capture All Errors Returned by a Function Call in Elixir
    2017-02-24 semaphoreci.com

    Blog

    Elixir is an unusual language because it functions as a kind of a wrapper around another language. It utilizes Erlang and its rock solid libraries to build new concepts on top of it. Erlang is also different compared to what one may call usual or mainstream languages, e.g. Java, C++, Python, Ruby, etc. in that it’s a functional programming language, designed with distributed computing in mind. https://semaphoreci.com/blog/2016/11/24/how-to-capture-all-errors-generated-by-a-function-call-in- ...

    Blog

    Elixir is a fast, dynamic and scalable language which is fast becoming adopted by the startup crowd and established businesses alike for production applications. Pinterest, Brightcove, Discord, and Canvas, to name a few, all run on Elixir, which in turn leverages the low-latency, fault-tolerant Erlang VM, meaning complete access to the Erlang ecosystem used by companies such as Heroku, WhatsApp, Klarna, and Basho. Starting with this tutorial, you'll learn the fundamental knowledge to get ...

  • How we program multicores – Joe Armstrong – YouTube
    2017-02-22 youtube.com

    Blog

    When we write a program, we just want it to run faster when we run it on a multicore. If I have a 10 core computer I just want it to run 10 times faster, if I have a 100 core computer it should run 100 times faster. When we program in Erlang this is approximately true. Our goal is that applications run 0.75 x N times faster on an N-core computer. In this talk I'll explain how we do this. Joe Armstrong is the inventor of the Erlang programming language. He has a PhD in computer science from th ...

  • Concurrency in Elixir – via @codeship
    2017-02-22 codeship.com

    Blog

    Erlang has been around for over 30 years and was built well before multi-core CPUs existed. Yet it’s a language that couldn’t be more relevant today! The underlying architecture of the language lends itself perfectly to the modern CPUs that are on every computer and mobile device. The computer I’m writing this article on has a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU, but more importantly it comes with eight cores. Simply put, it can perform eight tasks at once. https://blog.codeship.com/concurrency- ...

  • 12 Factors To Help You Evaluate Potential Technical Solutions
    2017-02-21 forbes.com

    Blog

    Often, the choice of technology starts with observing the customer. A Microsoft shop, for example, is probably better served by C#, .NET, Azure and SQL Server than by Java, Spring, AWS and Oracle. A customer whose developers use Ruby on Rails or NodeJS is probably not a good candidate for a solution that requires a more complex programming language such as Scala or Erlang. http://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestechcouncil/2017/02/09/12-factors-to-help-you-evaluate-potential-technical-solution ...

  • What is Erlang? | thinking_on thinking | Patrick Mulder
    2017-02-21 thinkingonthinking.com

    Blog

    You will touch Erlang at some point, if you follow the development of distributed systems. Erlang is a remedy to the pains of a monolithic application. And great programmers such as Adam Wiggins or Jose Valim name Erlang in the context of scalable systems e.g. in this article or here. So, I was curious enough to attend a great, small conference on Erlang: Munich Erlang Factory Lite 2013 As someone who is new to Erlang, a first question must be asked: What is Erlang? Let’s look at different ...
