Kenji Rikitake is Giving the Following Talks
IPv6 programming for Erlang/OTP

IP version 6 (IPv6) has been gaining more popularity as an alternative to the current IP version 4 (IPv4) protocol, as the global IPv4 address spaces will no longer be freely assigned. In this talk, Kenji will explain the similarity and difference between IPv4 and IPv6, and how the two protocols are handled in Erlang/OTP library modules. Kenji will also describe common pitfalls and lessons learned from reviewing various software packages to make them IPv6-compatible.

Talk objectives: Give an overview of IPv6 and how it is different from IPv4. Show how Erlang/OTP handles IPv6-specific details in the library modules. Share the programming details to maintain compatibility both on IPv4 and IPv6.

Target audience: Erlang programmers and systems administrators interested in deploying code for the IPv6 networks.
