BashoChats 001 - DTrace on the Erlang VM and Distributed RPC with Storm

Hi All - 

I'm thrilled to announce the inaugural BashoChats!

BashoChats is (or will be, rather) a monthly, intimate gathering at BashoWest to discuss issues, trends, and ideas in and around the areas of distributed systems and large-scale computing.  Basho will provide the pizza, beer, and projector. You bring the hard questions. 

The first installment will be happening at 7PM on Wednesday, December 14th. Here's what we have planned:



Andy Gross; Chief Architect, Basho Technologies

DTrace and the Erlang VM

The Erlang VM is winning over the hearts and minds of many developers because it makes a solid foundation for distributed, fault-tolerant systems. But peering inside a running system is a less-than-trivial task. To that end, there is some exciting work being done by various parties to instrument the VM using DTrace.

Andy will take us through the state of DTrace and the Erlang VM and explain how to instrument running systems and optimize for performance. 



Computing Reach Using Storm Distributed RPC

Nathan Marz; Engineer, Twitter. 

Storm is a distributed realtime computation system originally built by Nathan Marz and the team at BackType. Now at Twitter (thanks to an acquisition), Storm is being used to power various pieces of Twitter's massive infrastructure. 

In this talk, Nathan will shed some light on Storm basics and share in depth details on how Storm computes reach using distributed RPC.

You can read more about Nathan here.


Seats are limited. We can only hold about 40, so make sure to register if you're planning on attending. (Also, if you register but ultimately won't be able to make it, please free up your spot.)

See you next week. Let me know if you have any questions.

    @mark Thanks! As much as I'd like to be there at the first BashoChats, and see Nathan, I'd have to come up from LA. And that's a bit of a stretch since video will be available. But I do hope to make it one day. Cheers!

    @michael - assuming all goes to plan, they will be recorded and posted to That said, if you don't show, you won't be able to claim, "I was there at the first BashoChats." Your call...

    Will videos of the presentation be made available? I'm not sure I can make it. (I will decide by this evening and if I can't, I will free up my spot.)
