Distributed Actors in Haskell

Roman Gonzalez
Haskell Enthusiast

In this talk we are going to introduce a Haskell API that replicates some of Erlang features like actors, gen_server and supervisors, distributed computing with the safe net of types.

Talk objectives:

This talks tries to:

* Achieve a small introduction to Haskell
* Explain benefits of having a type system on top of Erlang-like API's

Target audience:

- This talk is addressed to the curious Erlang developer that would like to know other options to Erlang, without stop thinking about the Erlang Way™ of doing things
