All Elixir and Erlang developers, coders, enthusiasts and anyone who is somehow involved in Elixir development are invited to take part in RamblerElixir Meetup #4, which will be held on October 19 at 19:00, Thursday, at the cozy attic of Rambler & Co.
There will be three speakers on RamblerElixir Meetup.
Topic: "Erlang 10 years later"
I will share my experience in developing systems of different scale and purpose for Erlang over the last 10 years. The questions of the applicability of the platform and its ecosystem for solving problems from different subject areas will be discussed. In the process, we will look at several successful ones and, importantly, unsuccessful examples of using Erlang in real projects, try to "walk through" all the popular statements about this YAP, and discuss the future of the platform.
The report is aimed at a wide range of listeners, but it will be especially valuable for people in a situation: "We need to develop X, is it worth using Erlang for this?".
Topic: "Elixir applications monitoring"
A few words about the deploy process of Phoenix applications.
How we monitor Phoenix applications.
What are the alternatives?
What are the tools for profiling Elixir applications?
How does the Puma application server work in comparison to Cowboy.
Briefly, as we came from Ruby and Rails to Elixir and Phoenix.
What problems often have to be dealt with when it comes to heavy loads, and that Elixir is not a silver bullet.
Topic: "Apache CouchDB: more than HTTP API database"
This will be an introductory report about Apache CouchDB and its ecosystem. Main features and capabilities. Details of the implementation of the replication protocol and why this is important. Forks: Couchbase, Cloudant - what are the differences and why should not they be confused with the original project. The history of clustering, what happened in the end in 2.0 and how it works. What is interesting about the new release and where the project is heading.
