• Hacktoberfest Open Hack Night

    SalesLoft

    It's Hacktoberfest 2019! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, learning, and great company! Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors toward issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. Be sure to bring your laptop! This meetup centers around the Elixir programming language and is for anyone interested in discussing Elixir and related topics. It takes a broad approach, welcoming discussion and talks on Elixir, Erlang, Phoenix Framework, as well as other community packages and projects. Food and drinks will be provided. Please let us know if you have an interest in presenting. Thanks!

    This month John Oxford will be giving a talk titled "Building a simple weather station with Nerves" John will be using Elixir with Nerves to show you how to work with various weather related (and motion related) sensors where their data will be collected by a polling mechanism and then pushed to a MQTT broker that other applications and serves can subscribe to. He'll briefly go over how to write a Nerves image to an SD card and then show how you can update the image via Wi-Fi.

    This month Robert Bates will be giving a talk titled "Clex: Scaling Beyond the CPU" Many language ecosystems have direct support for leveraging alternative processing resources (GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs, etc), yet the Elixir ecosystem to date has primarily relied on CPU cores for all parallelization strategies. With the recent emergence of systems like Annex and Hastega, Elixir is beginning to broaden its concurrency approach to these as-yet untapped resources. Clex is a package for leveraging OpenCL within an Elixir application to develop universal code that can take advantage of not only CPU but GPU resources for parallelization across multiple platforms.

    This month Arup Chakrabarti will be giving a talk titled "Adopting Elixir at PagerDuty" In this talk, Arup will cover some of the steps (and missteps) that we made at PagerDuty while we introduced Elixir. While we will cover organizational technology changes in general, we will also cover what made choosing Elixir unique for us and how it became our default language.

    This month Osa Gaius will be giving a talk titled "Evaluating Java's Dominance" This talk argues that the social costs of functional programming are due to that fact that object-oriented programming maintains hegemony. It charts the rise of object-oriented programming’s hegemony. It then examines instances of hegemonic power, most notably in technical interviews and accepted design patterns. Lastly, this talk offers code translation as one strategy for counter-hegemonic resistance.

    This month Paul Daigle will be giving a talk on Testing Realtime Applications with Tsung. One of the strengths of the Phoenix framework is the ease with which websockets can be used for real time communication. In this talk, we will look at building a real time notification system using Phoenix Channels, and demonstrate how to load test that system using Tsung. We will be streaming the presentation on Zoom: https://salesloft.zoom.us/j/364298100 This meetup centers around the Elixir programming language and is for anyone interested in discussing Elixir and related topics.

  • "Clustering Elixir Apps with Swarm" by John Oxford

    This meetup centers around the Elixir programming language and is for anyone interested in discussing Elixir and related topics. At this meetup, John Oxford will discuss clustering Elixir apps with Swarm. Elixir and BEAM are well suited for clustered applications which allows for easy horizontal scaling. Swarm is a library that takes advantage of your cluster configuration by automatically distributing processes across your nodes and handing them off when a node is terminated. John will go through a basic tutorial of how to set Swarm up in a basic EPMD cluster and, if time, a Kubernetes cluster. John is a Senior Software Engineer at PowerSecure. Food and drinks will be provided. Please let us know if you have an interest in presenting. Thanks!
