  • eTorrent, writing Peer-to-Peer clients in Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Erlang is perfectly suited for a modern distributed world. Part of this world is also a relatively new kind of client/server paradigm, namely Peer-to-Peer communication. We believe that this kind of communication is important to the modern internet and hence, the eTorrent project was born to gauge the usefulness of Erlang in a heavily distributed Peer-to-peer setting. This talk is about using Erlang for implementing Peer-to-Peer clients. I claim Erlang made us write an efficient BitTor ...

  • Erlang for .NET Developers
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Presentations

    For many years a large number of developers have found comfort in the Microsoft world. From the early days of COM through to the later years of .NET, these developers have managed to get by working within the realms of a single technology at a time. The idea of monoglot programming is no longer sustainable. No single runtime or language exists which can best solve every problem that developers face. .NET developers are realising that there is more to life and technology than .NET, and they ...

  • Accelerated Erlang Development with e2
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    e2 is a light weight library that simplifies development of correct OTP applications. It improves developer productivity by eliminating boilerplate code and clarifying important concepts that are often lost in OTP's complexity. Many view OTP as an advanced topic, to be used only after a developer has mastered lower level Erlang concepts. e2 simplifies the use of OTP to the point where it's no longer "advanced" or complex. Some have called e2 "OTP on rails". e2 was born from the speaker' ...

  • Erlang End-To-End – Building and Managing Connected Devices
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    How do you remotely manage and debug embedded devices over intermittent and sometimes bad communication links? How can you achieve high productivity and short time to market, and still take advantage of the latest developments in device hardware technology? Is it possible to do high-performance touch screen graphics from Erlang? Feuerlabs announced its birth at the EUC 2011, and is now busy on its first customer projects. The market for Connected Devices is poised for explosive growth, and there ...

  • Magicbeam (or Devops Rules Everything Around Me)
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    The open source application magicbeam contains a variety of functionality which has been used at the ExactTarget Social Media Lab. We find it helps to ensure we are developing a robust OTP system. The core functionality allows us to easily deploy software without having to implement the full OTP release handling process. The full functionality of magicbeam is useful for both production and development environments differing only in how lucky a DevOps engineer feels. Talk objectives: Understan ...

In the process, the development team chose Erlang to build its My Saved feature, which allows users to save stories to a queue for reading later or when offline. Moriarty will talk about the overall strategy, why they chose Erlang and Mnesia as the foundation and what they are planning next. Tal ...

  • What can be done with Java but should better be done with Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Software development is more of craftsmanship than of engineering. A good craftsman carries more tools around than just a hammer. And it's relatively inefficient to use a hammer where you need a saw. So when you take the Java ecosystem for hammer, there is still a lot of situations where a saw called Erlang would be a much better fit. In this talk you will learn these situations from concrete examples. Talk objectives: To explain to the Java people in which cases they should prefer Erlang o ...

  • Erlang Writ Large
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    The Erlang/OTP programming model and framework is a boon to developers trying to build robust, scalable servers. Immutable data structures, lightweight processes and message passing in lieu of shared state all encourage healthy server designs with predictable operational characteristics. Cloudant builds and operates a global network of database servers based on a heavily customized flavor of Apache CouchDB called BigCouch.  I'll provide a view of our Data Layer through an Erlang/OTP lens and ...

  • Bitdeli: Data Crunching on a Shoestring Budget
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Thanks to utility computing providers such as Amazon EC2, the basic infrastructure for processing Big Data is available to everyone. Whereas earlier it was critical to design the software so that it would not hit limits of your infrastructure, now the software needs to avoid hitting your credit limit. In this talk, we will tell how and why we have used Erlang to build Bitdeli, a new backend service for data-intensive web applications. A key design goal was to make the system extremely cost-ef ...
