Talk: Erlang for Five Nines by Francesco Cesarini
Looks like an opportunity for a beer afterwards?
"Francesco Cesarini will be presenting the concurrent soft real time functional programming language Erlang and its rapidly growing community. He will describe why Erlang programs are generally 4 - 10 times shorter than their counterparts in Java, C and C++ achieving 99,999% availability. Ongoing research projects in the UK and overseas which will be covered, including refactoring, AI, type systems and control systems for robots. The talk will also go into why Erlang, originally invented to handle the next generation of Telecom products, has been successful in a much wider range of sectors including banking and e-commerce. "
