Brian Troutwine shares insight on using Erlang for a highly concurrent and very low latency bidding system implemented by Adroll.
Brian Troutwine (@bltroutwine) is a seven-year Erlang hacker, having gotten into it at University and his interests run to the large-scale distributed side of things. He's worked with Erlang professionally for four years, currently at AdRoll where he's a developer on the RTB (real-time bidding) team and previously at Rackspace, where he was a developer on the FireEngine project.
The Erlang Factory SF Bay is a two-day tech conference focused on the Erlang programming language. It brings together the rapidly growing community that uses Erlang in order to showcase the language and its various application to today's distributed environments. Those less familiarized with the language get first-hand accounts on how companies solve real-world challenges using Erlang. Training courses on Erlang, OTP and other tools ad solutions based on the language are usually organised around the conference.
