Empowering Devices for IoT with Erlang and FPGA



Irina Guberman discusses challenges using FPGAs and Erlang in IoT, including enforcing security and updating FPGA devices on the fly.


Irina Guberman is s software engineer/architect with a passion for large-scale distributed systems and all the associated challenges. She is a polyglot, but the favorite programming language since 2011 is Erlang. Her current professional aspiration since September 2016 is to make a real difference shaping the future of IoT.

About the conference

The Erlang & Elixir Factory SF Bay Area 2017 conference took place between 23 - 24 March with training between 20 - 22 March and 27 - 30 March. The conference explored the programming themes of distribution, concurrency, multicore and functional, it went deep into frameworks, delved into case studies and looked at the right tools for the task at hand. The conference has been evolving over the past few years and our community has grown beyond Erlang to encompass a more diverse range of languages from the Erlang Ecosystem. Next year, in recognition of this, we will be re-branding the conference to Code BEAM SF 2018, still in San Francisco and still with top-notch talks and speakers from the BEAM community.
