  • Concurrency + Distribution = Scalability + Availability, a Journey architecting Erlang Systems – Francesco Cesarini
    2015-12-09 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/berlin2015/francesco-cesarini Erlang/OTP has for years been described as your secret sauce to writing scalable and available systems. Erlang alone, however, will not do any magic. It is merely an enabler that, thanks to its semantics, programming model and predictable virtual machine makes the end results easier to achieve. In this talk, Francesco will walk through the topology patterns of modern distributed Erlang architectures, discussing ...

  • Panel Discussion – Code Mesh 2015
    2015-11-17 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2015/tony-hoare Tony Hoare will open with a 10 minute summary of language features proposed during his career. Each feature was motivated by the desire to reduce the range of programming errors by increasing the range of errors discovered at compile-time and ensuring that those which slip through can be detected and isolated at run-time. Then he and Bruce Tate will introduce the panel and ask the language inventors to give a  five minute i ...

  • Events Analysis with Riak, Perl and Erlang at Booking.com – Damien Krotkine
    2015-11-13 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2015/damien-krotkine At Booking.com, we have a constant flow of events coming from various applications and internal subsystems. This critical data needs to be stored for real-time, medium and long term analysis. Events are schema-less, making it difficult to use standard analysis tools.This presentation will explain how we built a storage and analysis solution based on Riak. The talk will cover: data aggregation and serialization, Riak con ...

  • 8LU with Robert Virding: Erlang, Concurrency and LFE (Lisp Flavoured Erlang)
    2015-11-12 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Erlang was designed around a set of requirements for telecom systems. They were distributed, massively concurrent systems which had to scale with demand, be capable of handling massive peak loads and never fail. The Erlang concurrency and error-handling model was developed around these requirements. This part of the talk describes how Erlang was designed, the actual concurrency model and how it is used to build systems. Why yet another lisp? Why do we need/want a new lisp for the Erlang VM? W ...

  • Synchronizing Game Components – Robert Virding
    2015-11-05 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.codemesh.io/codemesh2015/robert-virding To successfully utilise modern multi-core machines requires a rethink in the classic way games have been implemented. Having a central control loop and sharing mutable data are no longer viable as they definitely do not scale. This talk will present one possible solution to this problem. It will show an example and also look at the some of the problems which can arise and their solutions. About Robert Robert Vird ...
