Why you should attend Code BEAMSTO and how to convince your boss?

18.04.2018

Your manager may not immediately recognise the benefits of you attending Code BEAM STO, for both yourself and the business as a whole.

There are over 40 talks this year, covering a broad mix of subjects and championing many new tools, techniques and time-saving implementations, revealed at Code BEAM STO first. There is no other conference that brings such a range of talks together.

We'll have Mikhail Vorontsov from WhatsApp talk about their globally distributed database, ForgETS. Whilst, Anton Lavrik, also from WhatsApp, will be discussing how to make Erlang even more powerful. Meanwhile, Anna Neyzberg will explain how Cryptocurrencies work and why they are important. Erik Stenman and Tobias Lindahl will tell us about a new blockchain built in Erlang and Elixir running on top of the BEAM.

Ever been faced with a sudden mandate to secure an application environment and don't know how to do it? Chad Gibbons from Alert Logic has, and he will present a talk that explains how to ease transition into a compliant environment. Johan Bevemyr from Cisco systems will show us how Cisco is using Erlang for intent-based networking, used in its flagship routers and in its leading network automation solution, NSO. On the anniversary year of Erlang being made open source, Ingela Anderton Andin from Ericsson, will look back at these 20 years and visualize the achievements made by the Erlang/OTP team and show how open source has played an important part. Juan Facorro from Klarna will explain how to run Clojure on the BEAM and Kenji Rikitake gives a talk on APRS-IS servers with Erlang and Elixir. Plus talks from Kostis Sagonas, creator of PropEr, CutEr and Concuerror, Raimo Niskanen, creator of gen_statem and Microsoft are sending both Jessica DeVita and Nathan Herald to talk.

Are you into Elixir? Stay up-to-date with the latest Elixir developments, with talks from, amongst others, Elixir core team members Andrea Leopardi, Eric Meadows-Jönsson and Michal Muskala.

Lastly, we’ve two fantastic Keynotes, Osa Gaius, from MailChimp, and Allison Randal, President of the Open Source Initiative and a panel discussion on the Trends in Research.

We recommend you consider these points about Code BEAM STO, when trying to convince your boss:

  • Code BEAM STO saves your team time by getting the answers to your tech problems from experts who have already spent the time solving them!
  • Code BEAM STO helps your team avoid issues later down the line by learning more about the next generation of tools, frameworks and processes now!

Always Put it in Writing!
