What we learned from Spawnfest 2012
Their Spawnfest2012 entry was ridiculously ambitious – a ‘social’ application involving real-time data-streams, R-trees, heaping doses of OTP goodness including gen_fsm, gen_server, gen_event, and much much more. Because this wasn’t challenging enough, their three team-members were from three different countries, making both the application *and* the development distributed!
Join Mahesh as he takes you through their SpawnFest experience in all its glory (or infamy). Find out what worked, what features got tossed, and what failed miserably – and why.
Talk objectives: Learn about architecting complex multi-user ‘social’ applications, and then building them out under time-constraints.
Target audience: Anyone interested in Programming under Pressure (or Schadenfreude)
