In computer science, gossip is a communication mechanism in which computers form groups and exchange the distributed state information amongst each other. Some of most common use cases are: distributed databases, distributed configuration systems and data distribution services. This talk will take you to the world of gossip and its application to real-world problems. We will discover what makes gossip work, how to build a gossip system and discuss gossiperl – an Erlang implementation of a gossip message bus for distributed applications. The talk will be followed with a demo of zero-configuration gossip application running on a cluster of Raspberry Pi.
After this talk the attendee will have an overview of what gossip communication is, what makes gossip communication work, where and how to apply it.
Software engineers interested in building scalable, multi-technology systems.
