DevOps, host: Christian Westbrook

DevOps" is a new track for the 2012 Erlang factories looking at the emerging set of principles, methods and practices for communication, collaboration and integration between Software development and operations staff. Erlang old timers will say they have been doing DevOps for years, only calling it something different. This track looks at setting that record straight. It will cover tools, procedures and infrastructure needed in the management and deployment of Erlang systems.

Big Data, host: Steve Vinoski

Ever since Mnesia entered the scene in 1995, Erlang has been a language for the most discriminating database hackers. With CouchDB, Scalaris and Riak, Erlang is now on the forefront of the NoSQL wave - the biggest revolution in the database world since E.F. Codd invented the Relational Model. Alongside massive non-relational storage mediums, Erlang’s ability to distribute load across massive clusters has resulted in a wide range of frameworks, applications and uses around big data. This tracks investigates them all.

Erlang in the Cloud, host: Ram C Singh

It has been said that Erlang if a perfect fit for cloud computing. Not only for developing applications, but also for powering cloud infrastructure. It has been used for cloud computing like applications and infrastructure a decade before the term was coined. The distributed and scalable nature of the cloud, both when implementing the underlying architecture and for applications running on them, fits Erlang like a glove. This track will at look at Erlang in the clouds from both sides.
