Writing scalable software is hard. Writing parallel programs is really hard. With the right tool though, it gets easier. In this talk I will present the Erlang VM: Beam. Beam implements message passing, process ...

  • 8LU with Robert Virding: Erlang, Concurrency and LFE (Lisp Flavoured Erlang)
    2016-04-20 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 ...

  • PolyConf 14: The Value Of Diversity And Other Lessons From Biology / Garret Smith

    Nearly all complex life reproduces by sex, despite the high cost when compared to the alternative of cloning. Sex randomly reassembles working solutions, starting over. If you want to build the perfect football team, you clone Robert Lewandowski - you don't use his kids! If sex is so costly to optimized solutions, why is it nearly universal in nature? The answer lies in the importance of diversity -- having different options to chose from is so valuable in nature, complex life pays the high p ...
