  • Rewriting GitHub Pages with Riak Core, Riak KV, and Webmachine
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    GitHub Pages, a feature allowing users to publish content to the web by simply pushing content to one of their GitHub hosted repositories, has had lackluster performance and uptime in the recent years. In this talk, Jesse will discuss the core requirements of the GitHub Pages application, why Erlang, Riak, and Webmachine were chosen for the development, and how they were used to fulfill those requirements now and for years to come with minimal development and operational maintenance. Talk objec ...

  • Props: A DSL for Dealing with JSON-like Structures in Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Presentations

    Dealing with JSON in Erlang is not nearly as seamless as in JavaScript. Using existing tooling from the Erlang ecosystem, I've created a new and, most importantly, easy to use data structure for working with JSON-like property structures. Learn how to use props for your own projects, and also you can leverage tools like Neotoma to make your own DSLs. Talk objectives: Introduce Props library and present how it was made and how others can make their own DSLs in Erlang. Target audience: Erlan ...

  • Erlang on OpenVMS and in the HP Cloud – an overview of what HP is wittingly and perhaps unwittingly doing with Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    The speaker has made something of a hobby in recent years of porting Open Source software to HP’s heritage OpenVMS operating system. One of the most challenging and interesting porting exercises was porting Erlang/OTP. In this talk, the speaker will discuss the motivations behind this work, some of the challenges faced, progress to date, and future plans. In addition, the speaker has recently joined HP’s corporate Cloud Services team, and in this capacity he will provide an overview of where ...

  • Virtualizing Parallel Patterns for CPU/GPU Architectures
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Commonly-used patterns of parallel computation, communication, and interaction provide a high-level parallel programming methodology which allows the conceptual description of parallel programs whilst fostering platform independence and algorithm abstraction. This talk presents some trends in parallel patterns for CPU/GPU architectures to enable software and hardware virtualization. It will discuss some initial results and the plans in ParaPhrase,  a novel 36-month €3.5 million European resea ...

  • Just-in-time compiler for the Erlang VM
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    After the success of the Java Hot Spot VM, just-in-time compilers are become more and more popular in more and more languages. Just-in-time compilers attempt to make code run faster by compiling parts of your programs to native code in order to speed up execution time. Just-in-time compilers have been shown to speed up performance by up to a factor of 5 for specific benchmarks and it is about time that the Erlang VM is fitted with one of its own. This talk will give a brief overview of the di ...

  • Spring Fever for your networks
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Software Defined Networks (SDN) is one of the hot topics in the networking industry these days. SDN is a radical change in the way networking is approached today. SDN brings the whole software development eco system close the network forwarding elements like switches and router. SDN enables the operators to integrate all the network resources and aspect into the application domain. The network virtualization will follow the computer virtualization. By defining a vendor agnostic API (OpenFlow) t ...

  • Erlang and PaaS, panel debate
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    What services could a PaaS provide to make Erlang easier to deploy and operate in production? Are there any Erlang features that are fundamentally incompatible with PaaS? How can some of Erlang/OTP's more unique features (distributed processes, hot code upgrades) be made PaaS compatible?In this session, we'll explore these topics through an open discussion with the aim of discovering how best to make a PaaS where Erlang feels like a first class citizen.Talk objectives: To generate an open discus ...

  • Certifying your car with Erlang
    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Modern cars are full of software, with 50-100 processors and tens of millions of lines of code. Increasingly, this software is based on the AUTOSAR standard, drawn up by a consortium including Toyota, Ford, GM, and most of the world's other major car manufacturers. AUTOSAR defines the "basic software" which should run on each processor, providing a standardised environment enabling AUTOSAR applications to be distributed freely around the processors in the car. Such is the theory. In practice, ...
