Fuzed project creator and committer

Dave Fayram is a modern Silicon Valley veteran working in San Francisco. He first started working with Erlang in 2007 to create the Fuzed project and appreciated the experience so much he brought Erlang to Powerset for the Katamari Project. He has contributed to open source software that helps integrate other languages with Erlang. When not working on Katamari and Fuzed, he experiments with Erlang-inspired designs in other functional and OO languages.

Building Reliable Distributed Heterogenous Services with Katamari/Fuzed

Erlang is a powerful language for distributed computation, but most modern production software is written in a variety of languages that are not as suited to reliable, distributed programing. At Powerset, we developed a platform for reliable distributed computing that leveraged the Erlang Ports infrastrcutre to make the robustness and flexibility of Erlang-based networked infrastructure to a variety of language runtimes, without onerous cross-porting work. From that base, we extended our system to support heterogenous networks of services which can be added or removed in real time without interrupting existing services, using a simple model akin to an erlang event loop to talk with external code.
