Justin Sheehy is Giving the Following Talks
Webmachine: an Erlang resource server for the Web

Webmachine is a system for easily and declaratively building well-behaved HTTP applications in Erlang. It is based on a very different execution model than most frameworks, making it easy to focus on writing the core of your application while also helping you do the harder parts of HTTP right. Justin Sheehy will discuss Webmachine's unusual Web programming model and demonstrate how to quickly build and extend Erlang / Web / REST applications.
