UnConference - 9.00 - 15.00
The Right Tool for the Right Job
New tools have emerged within the last three years that are changing the tech landscape drastically. Work is being done efficiently saving time and money. The key to the future of tech will be knowing how to choose the right tools for your job. This combination of talk and interactive discussion groups will allow you to learn from the leaders of these new technologies while brainstorming with others who are facing the same problems as you. Come learn, share, and connect. With 6 speakers form 2600Hz, ProTrade and Citizens Sports, Podio and Mashape, this is an event not to be missed.
ejabberd Tutorial 9.00 - 12.00
During a half-day tutorial we will be introduced briefly to the XMPP protocol, then to turn to internal ejabberd architecture and finally to focus on clustering and distribution model of ejabberd-based system. Having the theoretical background in place we will move to the hands-on part where each participant will get a chance to configure, tune, set up and stress test a cluster of ejabberd nodes.
A PropEr Tutorial 13.00 - 16.00
Property-based testing is a novel approach to software testing, where the tester needs only specify the generic structure of valid inputs for the program under test, plus certain properties that the program is expected to satisfy for every valid input. This hands-on tutorial will introduce through examples the support that PropEr provides for property-based testing in Erlang, present some of the common mistakes that novice users do, and will give advice for the proper use of the tool.
DevOps BootCamp 9.00 - 16.00
The DevOps Bootcamp is made up of tutorials that allow the attendees to get hands on with topic and learn from some of the best minds in the programming world. Four one and a half hour lectures on Demystifying Erlang Releases, Upgrades and Deployment, Monitoring and Management of Erlang in Production, Fine-Tuning the Erlang VM and Tracing and Debugging Erlang Programs.
Hackathon 9.00 - 16.00
On the third day of the conference we will be running a Hackathon. The goal of the hackathon is to take the collaborative coding happening globally on the internet into a room of - with a bit of luck - coders already having collaborated online.
Aimed at primarily Erlang open source coders, a good grasp of writing Erlang to produce working code is required. The hackathon won't be a tutorial on Erlang but the chance to hack on anything you want while sharing it and socializing with people you only meet annually.
Happy Hour - Leaving Drinks 15.30 - 17.00
Goodbye (until next year) Drinks, courtesy of 2600hz! Location is right next to the Marines' Memorial Hotel at the Burritt Room.
