Meet up

Erlang in your infrastructure

Tuesday, 12th May at ThoughtWorks, London

This meetup was organised by Default User Group in May 2009

Erlang has not gained a huge following as a programming language but it is being used to build scalable chunks of infrastructure. From messaging to queues to document databases

Tamas Nagy

In this talk, Tamas introduces Erlang and how it can be used within web applications. In order to illustrate this, Tamas explains the XMPP protocol that is extremely easy to use within erlang. One implementation of the XMPP protocol is Ejabberd which currently holds 40% market share among public XMPP domains.

Magnus Henoch - TFL Jouney Angel

Following on from the talk by Tamas on using Erlang within your infrastructure, Magnus presents this introduction to the TFL Journey Angel project. Although the project didn’t get past the prototype stage it is a good illustration of what Erlang

Tony Garnock-Jones-RabbitMQ Internal Architecture

Following on from Alexis’ talk giving an introduction to RabbitMQ, Tony attempts to explain something of the internal architecture of RabbitMQ. Along with this he also tries to explain how RabbitMQ can be used in federation and in achieving redundancy for high availability

Alexis Richardson - Introduction to RabbitMQ

In this talk Alexis introduces RabbitMQ, “An open source message broker that just works.” Alexis explains the main reasons why you might need a message broker:

Mike Bridgen - Application of RabbitMQ

In this talk Mike illustrates how RabbitMQ can be used within a real world application. Mike is working on an application to integrate the feeds that are used within the BBC website
