Cliff Moon shows how to create a polyglot distributed application by integrating Scala with Erlang through JInterface, a library designed for JVM-based languages to communicate with Erlang processes.
Cliff Moon is co-founder at Fast_ip where he uses both Scala and Java to build the most advanced net flow analysis platform in the world. In a previous life, Cliff wrote Dynomite, one of the first open source Dynamo clones. He is a well regarded member of both the NoSQL and the Erlang communities, as well as a frequent organizer of Bay Area drink-ups.
The Erlang Factory is an event that focuses on Erlang - the computer language that was designed to support distributed, fault-tolerant, soft-realtime applications with requirements for high availability and high concurrency. The main part of the Factory is the conference - a two-day collection of focused subject tracks with an enormous opportunity to meet the best minds in Erlang and network with experts in all its uses and applications.
