ABOUT CODE BEAM LITE AMSTERDAM

Code BEAM Lite Amsterdam brought 13 cutting-edge talks from leading practitioners together over one day.

 

 

 

When, where and why

The talks focussed on real-world, practical applications of Erlang, Elixir and the BEAM - all within the context of high-performance and massively scalable distributed systems.

The conference was co-organised by Botsquad and Kabisa.

Formerly Erlang Factory Lite

Code BEAM Lite conferences replaced Erlang Factory Lite conferences, and are now part of the Code Sync family of tech conferences. Check our past conferences by visiting our old website, but do come back here as we’ll be posting more details and the old website will fade away.

The big ball of nouns

All projects tend to get more difficult to maintain with time. Sure, Elixir and Functional Programming can make things much simpler, but after many months, the complexity will creep in anyway. Why is that? The code is just a set of functions, without the complexity associated with Object Oriented languages. So what’s wrong?

What actually is the BEAM?

In this talk, Michal will carefully explore the BEAM, both the runtime and the compiler. We'll see how they relate, what particular strengths this gives to our code and how we can leverage it from the applications we write every day in Erlang and Elixir. Finally, we'll see how the BEAM is similar and different to other environments and languages like Java's JVM, C#'s CLR or Lua.

Things you could do with Mix, but probably shouldn't

We’ve all used mix new, mix deps.get and a whole lot of other mix commands. But there is a lot more you could do with mix. Let’s use mix for something totally different and absolutely useless?! As we do, we’ll learn about mix’s internals and ways we could use mix to solve our own problems, create our own tooling or just have some fun! $> mix play Bruno Mars … ♪ playing Treasure by Bruno Mars ♪ ...
