  • Lambda Night – Tomasz Kowal “Monitoring distributed systems”
    2014-06-17 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Lambda Night is an event designed to once again bring together the great people we've met during the Lambda Days conference. Erlang Solutions is buying us beer so make sure to stick around after the talks! Tomasz Kowal "Monitoring distributed systems" Garrett Smith "Functional Code Considered Beautiful" You've heard the arguments in favor of functional languages: they make parallel computation easier, help you reason about your program, let you do more with fewer lines of code, etc. But ...

  • Lambda Days – Rafał Słota – Geographically and Organizationally Distributed Meta FileSystem
    2014-04-30 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Experiences with Implementation of Geographically and Organizationally Distributed Meta FileSystem Using Erlang/OTP Increasing availability of computational platforms like Grids and Clouds generates new challenges in the field of data accessibility. One of the objectives of PL-Grid PLUS project [1] is to provide a meta file system operating in user space, which virtualizes organizationally and geographically distributed, heterogeneous storage systems - called VeilFS [2]. As a basic technolog ...

  • Lambda Days – Daniel Krzywicki – The continuous evolution of asynchronous agents
    2014-04-29 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Evolutionary algorithms are a class of meta-heuristics used to solve hard optimization problems. The idea of evolutionary multi-agent systems (EMAS) introduces algorithms more similar to biological evolution than classical evolutionary methods. However, the possibilities of the existing implementations have been limited by the underlying technology, which is usually Java. In this talk, I am going to show how actors and functional patterns can be used to design fully autonomous and asynchronou ...

  • Lambda Days – Jakub Oboza – Design, building and handling in production a messaging system
    2014-04-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Design, building and handling in production a messaging system Messaging systems are important part of our life. We use them every day in almost every single interaction with other people/systems via electronic devices. But how do we design and build such a system that has to handle millions of messages every day? In this talk I would like to say few words about each step of creating and handling such a system. From design decisions like choosing the language and the platform through building ...

    LuvvieScript - an OTP-ish compile-to-javascript dialect of Erlang (plus runtime...) github.com/hypernumbers/LuvvieScript The old polyglot world of large software development teams supported by diverse operational teams no longer works. The current software environment demands teams that are capable of dripping software releases to the public by continuously deploying features. Modern teams are increasingly eschew normal operations support for DevOps - where the systems maintenance a ...

  • Lambda Days – Kevin Hammond – ParaForming: Forming Parallel Functional Programs using Advanced Refactoring Techniques
    2014-04-22 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Kevin Hammond - ParaForming: Forming Parallel Functional Programs using Advanced Refactoring Techniques Despite Moore's "law", uniprocessor clock speeds have now stalled. Rather than single processors running at ever higher clock speeds, it is common to find dual-, quad- or even hexa-core processors, even in consumer laptops and desktops. Haswell, Intel's forthcoming multicore architecture, will have eight cores by default. Future hardware will not be slightly parallel, however, as in today's ...

  • Lambda Days – Vladimir Kirillov – An Open Erlang PaaS Done Right
    2014-04-09 Erlang Central

    Videos



    An Open Erlang PaaS Done Right I'm going to describe the architecture of the Erlang platform that emerges from a toy PaaS to a build-yourself-a-platform product. In the talk I'd like to compare existing ops strategies to operate Erlang software, identify their pitfalls and offer solutions, some of which were implemented in Voxoz. Some of the project outlines can be read at here Talk Objectives Lead the audience through: development environment disaster porn deployment disaster ...

  • Lambda Days – Torben Hoffmann – Erlang Patterns Matching Business Needs
    2014-04-07 Erlang Central

    Videos



    In this talk we will present a number of common patterns from Erlang systems and how these patterns relates to business needs. Most of the patterns revolve around the notion of how failure is handled and we will discuss how active treatment of failure leads to better options for the product owner when it comes to prioritising fixes and new features. By modelling the patterns using OPM (Object-Process Methodology) we get a new way of talking about Erlang systems and architectures, which wil ...
