Simon Thompson shows how Wrangler can help with making systems run on multi-core hardware, including three Wrangler refactoring techniques for retrofitting concurrency to Erlang applications.
Simon Thompson has been with functional programming since the 80s. His main focus at the moment is working with Huiqing Li on building tool support to help with code transformations: refactoring, code migration, API upgrade and so on. But he also teaches and they're teaching Erlang to students at Kent for the first time this year and have written books on Erlang, Haskell and type theory.
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.
