That Conference

Bryan goes to camp, gets geek on.


Bryan –  8/15/2012 10:30 AM – Erlang Goes to Camp!

The functional programming language Erlang is battle-tested, open-source and cross-platform. It simplifies writing reliable, concurrent, distributed systems. You may be surprised to learn Facebook’s chat backend, CouchDB, RabbitMQ, GitHub’s backend and Amazon’s SimpleDB are all written in Erlang, and every phone call you make is likely helped along by some Erlang somewhere. You may also be surprised you can write and run Erlang on Windows and leverage it in your .NET shop. A team of C# and Erlang developers is a force to be reckoned with because Erlang and .NET are complements–each is lousy at what the other is exceptional at. Realizing this can save you and your company a lot of time, money and headaches. Many C# developers write both JavaScript and SQL scripts; adding Erlang to the mix should be just as natural. Come learn the “what”, “why” and “how” and get started!

Bryan –  8/15/2012 2:30 PM –  Erlang, CQRS and .NET (Architectural S’mores)

The squares run away from CQRS, the hipsters run away from C# (aka “leaving .NET”), and who the hell has even heard of Erlang? In this session we will demonstrate how these three anti-heroes can join together to form an effective, non-traditional, badass way of building beautiful, scalable, maintainable systems. What is CQRS? CQRS is an architectural pattern with two goals 1) commit technological heresy 2) separate reads from writes at the system level. What’s Erlang? An industry-proven functional programming language that simplifies writing reliable, concurrent, distributed systems. What’s .NET? OK, stop with the silly questions. Well why these three? Many of the ideas of CQRS dovetail perfectly with the sweet-spots of Erlang… er, um… until you get to the UI part. Erlang doesn’t have much to say about the CQRS tenet of task-based UIs, but Microsoft does— search “Microsoft Inductive User Interface” and you’ll see what I mean. Erlang + CQRS + .NET “Go Team!”
