Erlang at Opscode

Kevin Smith, Director of Engineering at Opscode, will be coming down from Raleigh to discuss how Opscode is improving performance and stability by migrating key systems to Erlang.

Kevin has been programming in Erlang since 2006. He's a frequent conference speaker on the topics of concurrency, scalability, and Erlang. He's also the author of the PragProg's "Erlang In Practice" screencast series.  Prior to Opscode Kevin worked at several high profile companies such as Heroku, Engine Yard, and Basho Technologies using Erlang to build performant and robust distributed systems.

    Tremendous talk. I really like Opscode. Kevin's talk was full of wisdom, experience, and candid opinions. The presentation was accessible and informative and just the right length. Perhaps in a future talk Kevin can show us some small samples of code!

    Kevin did a great job. I learned a lot & especially appreciated his practical insights, candidly sharing his experiences, and the presentation of hard data he had collected on ruby to erlang comparisons.
