Jumping gen_servers! A new way of building distributed applications | Peer Stritzinger

Distributed applications in Erlang have been static, limited and manual. Couldn't they be dynamic, limitless and automatic instead? Heterogenous large networks with interesting topology and varied properties of nodes and links call for a new way of building such applications.

We will together explore building blocks made out of processes, messages, links and monitors sprinkled with practical experiments. Distributed self managing computation and communication, seeking new emergent behaviours.


Kick off a new way of building distributed computing showing code everyone can understand and see what new properties emerge. Giving an outlook how we can get further into the rabbit hole of Erlang Distributed possibilities.


Distributed computing practitioners, interested in scalable, reliable self managing systems.
