Erlang's basic features are a perfect match for massively concurrent, distributed cloud environments. Being rooted in an actor model with no shared memory, the complexity of multi-core programming is hidden from the developers, allowing them to focus on the program. This tutorial will introduce Erlang and its actor model, explaining how it is positioning itself to win the multi-core challenge. Read more.

In recent years, communities as wide-ranging as Wikihow to Thunderbird have been surveying participants and using this information to improve the experiences of participants. Learn how open source projects are tracking contributors to identify where people fall away, and to nudge them forward, with an eye toward actionable data and addressing possible sources of bias.

Scalability today is no longer a question of architecture, or programming language, but instead two things: message passing and data distribution. With the following patterns under your belt, anyone is well on their way to solving both. * Message patterns: request-reply, publish-subscribe, push-pull, exclusive pair. * Data structures: DHTs, Vector clocks, Merkel trees, CRDTs.

When our dev team hit a rut recently, we spent a year examining ourselves - our motivations and values, our processes and tools, our relationships to each other and our customers, even our physical space. We put what we learned to good use and reenergized the team. In this talk we'll share how we did it, some surprises along the way, and techniques that you can use to help reboot your own team.

Imagine an organization designed to create happiness among its workers. I’ll talk about my research for the past several years, companies I’ve visited, struggles against my own preconceptions, the surprising number of others who are pushing on the same ideas and writing books on the subject, things I’ve found that seem like answers, and questions that continue to accumulate.

A programming language is not enough to build massively scalable fault tolerant cloud based solutions. You need middleware, architectural patterns and tools fit for the purpose. Erlang is no exception. This talk introduces OTP, the defacto framework that comes as part of the Erlang distribution and for decades, has stopped programmers from reinventing the wheel. Read more.

This talk progresses through a succession of counterexamples (and a few examples) in combining business and open source. We will cover ways to divide your community, withhold value from your customers (paying and not), squander good will, and inhibit adoption. Read more.

Contributing to Humanitarian FOSS (HFOSS) projects can provide tangible product benefit to organizations building technology for good, and tremendous impact to their beneficiaries. But it can also offer intangible, and often unexpected, benefit to volunteer contributors, helping them expand beyond their core competencies in ways they may never have imagined. Read more.

In this session we'll explore how to give, and receive, useful critiques of our work. We'll talk about the different kinds of critiques that are necessary as an idea develops. The emphasis will be on reviewing subjective work, not the easy stuff like white space at the end of a line. Read more.
