Casey Kuhlman, CEO of Eris Industries, will come to Switzerland to talk about their distributed application software stack.
The first installment of the "What is Eris?" talk will focus on the commercial and governance trends which underpin how Eris stack has been designed. In particular the talk will look at three topics:
(1) the spectrum of trust which is used in commercial and governance applications and its implications for distributed systems;
(2) the spectrum of power distribution within commercial and governance systems and how the centralized v. decentralized discussions present a false choice to advocates for change; and
(3) how the convergence of globalization, local movements, open data movements, hacker movements, and legal and financial technical movements will affect distributed systems' design and thinking.
This talk will be structured at a level approachable for non-technical people who have a relatively high understanding of how distributed systems operate generally.
Thanks a lot to Rackspace for hosting this meetup!
The talk will be recorded.
