  • Using Elixir to get the fun back in Lego Mindstorms – Torben Hoffmann – Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-07-07 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015/torben-hoffmann Robots are fun. Programming is fun. Programming Lego robots with the visual environment... well, not so fun. This is the starting point for putting Elixir on the Lego Mindstorms EV3. It ought to be fun to do, but my son and I got lost in the visual environment when trying to do advanced things. After having created a simple EV3 library in Elixir the fun started coming back. This talk is about how the EV3 Elixir librar ...

  • The C1K Problem – Connecting Thousands of Erlang Devices – Peer Stritzinger – Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-07-06 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015/peer-stritzinger Erlang users learn that Erlang distribution, while its very convenient and useful only works for a limited amount of nodes. Using Erlang on small networked embedded devices in distributed industrial control systems the need for up to 1000 nodes in one network arises soon (think large factory floor). At the same time we have a limited amount of resources in these embedded nodes and the network itself. This talk sta ...

  • Techniques for Metaprogramming in Erlang – Sean Cribbs – Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-07-06 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Much ado has been made about metaprogramming in Elixir and LFE, but what can you do in plain old Erlang? Well, metaprogramming is just a fancy way to generate code, so we can generate Erlang code! In this talk, I'll walk through various techniques for writing programs that generate Erlang, including examples from well-known Erlang tools and libraries such as Lager, Erlydtl, and Neotoma. Talk objectives: Explain practical techniques for generating Erlang code, including macros, parse transf ...

    http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015/loic-hoguin The Cowboy project has matured. After the 1.0 release in the middle of 2014, the project has made great progress toward a simpler, unified interface, started using maps, added a ton of configurable options and numerous hooks for instrumentation purposes, and of course improved conformance with the ever evolving standards. In addition to Cowboy itself, the talk will also shed some light on the three other projects that are vital to its existenc ...

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015... These are some thoughts, maybe even a philosophy, I have about program language design based on my experiences with various programming languages. They include languages I have used, and languages I have been a part of in designing and implementing. These languages have come from many different types and have had different characteristics. Robert Virding is Principal Language Expert at Erlang Solutions Ltd. While at Ericsson AB ...

  • Scalable is Awesome, Literally! – Garrett Smith – Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-06-25 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Scalability is a desirable characteristic of any system. But what does the word "scalable" actually mean? In this talk, Garrett will argue that when we use the word "scalable" we should instead use the word "awesome". Awesome has has the same meaning... but is a lot more fun to say! Garrett will debunk the myth of scalability and provide a model of software engineering that uses well defined standards of performance and that respects the laws of physics. He'll reveal the secrets of building s ...

  • Telling the Functional Programming Story – Simon St.Laurent – Keynote at Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-06-23 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015/simon-stlaurent Functional programming is an old discipline, but a new story to most programmers. Over the last decade, publishers have added functional programming topics to their lists. Publishing on it still feels new and experimental, largely because it hasn't broken through with a giant best-seller. Achieving popularity requires more than just writing great books (or giving great talks) on great programming languages. What's ...

  • Erlang from the Outside – Bodil Stokke – Keynote at Erlang User Conference 2015
    2015-06-23 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2015/bodil-stokke Why isn't Erlang more popular? This question keeps coming up, and the community keeps proposing answers – most of which are so far off target they just make the situation worse. Bodil examines the state of affairs, offers a widely travelled outsider's perspective, and boldly proposes solutions which could very well make the situation even worse. Finally, she attempts to tackle the real question: what's to be gained by ...

  • EUC 2014 – Benoît Chesneau – dcouch, an Alternative to Mnesia with Unique Features
    2014-08-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    At the Erlang Factory SF BAY AREA 2014, I gave a quick lightning talk introducing opencouch a document oriented database compatible with Apache CouchDB that you can embed in your Erlang Application. The main goal of opencouch is to propose a viable alternative to mnesia while adding some key features of Apache CouchDB like the master-master replication or new features like the horizontal scalability and multiple storage backends. The feedback was really encouraging and I decided to go further. O ...
