Tribute to Joe Armstrong - Michał Ślaski
-------
Computer Science describes a number of concurrency models, which were implemented in practice over the last 50 years. In the 80’s Joe Armstrong made some observations about concurrent languages and stated that such a language should do three things at a very primitive level: message passing should be extremely fast, context switching should be extremely fast and there should be a built-in error processing mechanism. His observations paved a way to Erlang-style concurrency and later to his PhD thesis. In this talk we discuss the history of concurrency models and Joe’s contribution to Computer Science.
