Jesper Louis Andersen is Giving the Following Talks
Ranking Games & Scheduling Jobs

This talk presents two interesting use cases of Erlang. One, we present a ranking framework for 1v1 games in Erlang, based on the Glicko2 system and we use it for ranking duels in the game Quake Live. Two, we present the use of the JOBS framework to schedule ranking jobs and give a compelling use case for it. We also uncover how to test parts of JOBS.

WARNING: The talk may contain traces of Erlang QuickCheck!
