Benoît Chesneau is Giving the Following Talks
A Data Platform over and on the Web

Databases and web applications are intrinsically linked. But while people still separate both, we thought that we could innovate in the refuge project and embrace the new paradigms and standards that design what the web will be tomorrow. Erlang OTP could help a lot with that and most of the refuge platform is using it.

This talk will present a new way to exchange, render and use your data over the web by using Erlang and OTP to create a gateway or a thin layer between client applications and backends with the help of webrtc and websockets standards.

Talk objectives:
With some code, it will show you how to use core properties of Erlang and OTP to handle these new challenges:
    - Handle new protocols (pattern matching),
    - build a performant and scalable backend using OTP
    - distribute the works to other services in Erlang or not, locally or not

It will also highlight some libraries and tools we built that can help cover these topics.

Target audience: Erlang developers wanting to build new web services.
