    Erlang-Lua: How to write an Erlang C Node http://www.erlang-factory.com/berlin2014/robby-raschke It is quite straightforward to integrate Erlang with other technologies, several mechanisms exist: NIF, linked-in drivers, port programs, C and Java Nodes. This presentation will outline how you can combine the port program and C Node mechanisms to provide a coupling between Erlang and the Lua programming language. The following details will be covered (albeit briefly): starting and stopping t ...

    The Cool Kids <3 Erlang http://www.erlang-factory.com/berlin2014/gustav-simonsson At the 2014 EUC, Garrett Smith claimed the cool kids do not use Erlang. Unbeknownst to him – at the very same time, in Berlin – a bunch of hardcore developers prototyped an advanced Bitcoin contract system in Erlang, at the legendary underground bitcoin-accepting bar, room 77. Cranking out a stack using Erlang and JavaScript, a bleeding-edge, multi-signature Bitcoin system was built, featuring ne ...

    "Time, it will not erase me! For what is time? It's just passing by." -- Lost In The Trees (2007) http://ricon.io/ What is the meaning of time in a distributed system? How can we make sense of events separated by great spans of space-time? Why do I need to give Riak a vector clock with every write? How do vector clocks even work? This talk is the history of how we have tried to make sense of time, ordering, and causality in Riak, the trade-offs associated with each solution, and repre ...

    Social Code http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2014/garrett-smith Have you ever read someone's code and exclaimed, "What in tarnation? What is going on here? What was this person on? I hate my job!" Be honest, was that other person ever you, maybe once? Code is no longer merely a technical problem - it's also social. We write code for others. We write code for ourselves. We use computer languages to express our ideas and our intentions. What we leave behind is a social artifact that either resp ...

    Implementing Languages on the BEAM http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2014/robert-virding The BEAM, the Erlang VM, was designed to implement Erlang. This has led to that the features it provides and its limitations are different from most other VMs. In this talk we learn will why the BEAM looks like it does and how this affects the implementation of languages on it. We will also show the Erlang compiler workflow and how to use this when implementing languages. Finally we will show examples of ho ...

    Tackling Dirty Jobs with Erlang's Schedulers http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2014/steve-vinoski A key feature of the Erlang virtual machine (VM) is its sophisticated and scalable schedulers, which are responsible for ensuring application processes and tasks take advantage of all system cores. In this talk, Steve will explain some of the inner workings of Erlang's schedulers, focusing on how large-scale applications such as the Riak database augment the VM with native C/C++ code for performanc ...

    2014-11-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Nearly all complex life reproduces by sex, despite the high cost when compared to the alternative of cloning. Sex randomly reassembles working solutions, starting over. If you want to build the perfect football team, you clone Robert Lewandowski - you don't use his kids! If sex is so costly to optimized solutions, why is it nearly universal in nature? The answer lies in the importance of diversity -- having different options to chose from is so valuable in nature, complex life pays the high p ...

    Programming a Massively Scalable Garage Door Opener in Erlang http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2014/peer-stritzinger Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are widely used to control from a simple garage door to everything in factories. There are legions of specialized PLC programmers who make those machines do their work. A set of textual and graphical programming languages is standardized in IEC-61131. In order to add some programmability to control machinery in a embedded system writte ...
