Rick Reed shares scalability and reliability insights, techniques, and hacks used and learned developing WhatsApp on an Erlang/FreeBSD infrastructure.
Joakim Recht discusses how Tradeshift moved from manual deployment processes to automation and what this means in terms of organizational scalability, technology, transparency, and culture.
Benoît Chesneau discusses creating, scaling and reusing HTTP connections, summarizing techniques used to reduce memory usage in Erlang and ways to handle massive client connections efficiently.
Sponsored by Basho. Sean Cribbs discusses the theory behind several rich data types introduced with Riak 2.0 and then walking through some example applications that use them in popular languages.
Jonas Bonér discusses four key traits of Reactive Apps: Event-Driven, Scalable, Resilient and Responsive, how they impact application design, how they interact, related technologies and techniques.
Dan North believes Agile scales if teams achieve contextual consistency through shared guiding principles, a clear vision and a common understanding.
Simon Marlow describes a concurrency-based system built with Haskell that allows front-end programmers to write business logic to access all the back-end services in a concise and consistent way.
Michael Nygard discusses several loopholes in the CAP theorem that can be used to engineer practical, real-world systems with desirable features.
Joe Armstrong describes the foundations of fault tolerant computation and the basic properties a system should have in order to be able to function in an adequate manner despite the occurrence of hardware and software errors, summarizing the key features of Erlang and showing how they can be used for programming fault-tolerant and scalable systems on multi-core clusters.
In this solutions track talk, sponsored by Solace Systems, Aaron Lee discusses the value and challenges of efficiently moving information along with techniques and tools that can increase the rate and efficiency of data flows within big data architectures.
Joe Armstrong discusses how fault tolerance relates to scalability and concurrency, and how Erlang helps build fault-tolerant systems on multi-core clusters.
Jonas Bonér discusses how the four traits of reactive apps -Event-Driven, Scalable, Resilient and Responsive- impact app design, how they interact, and their supporting technologies and techniques.
