Toronto Erlang Factory Lite
Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
Our first ever Toronto Erlang Factory Lite has been confirmed. Join us on 23 November for a full day conference on Erlang as a powerful tool for building innovative, scalable and fault tolerant applications.
Our speakers will showcase examples from their work experience and their personal success stories, thus presenting how Erlang solves the problems related to scalability and performance. Come listen to Heroku's Fred Hebert of "Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good!" fame, Garrett Smith - creator of e2 and the MongoDB is Web Scale videos and Louis-Philippe Gauthier from AdGear.
At this event we will focus on what Erlang brings to the table in the multicore era. We will take a deep dive with Yurii Rashkovskii into Elixir - a functional programming language that has a Ruby-like syntax and it's built on top of the Erlang VM. Elixir is fully compatible with existing Erlang code, has many modern features, very good metaprogramming support and the benefit of learning from other languages’ experiences.
We'll also get some fresh updates on the Riak distributed database from Basho's Chris Meiklejohn.
If you have an idea or a project you have been working on and would like to share it with the local community this is a great opportunity! Submit your talk here!
