Upcoming Activities

Mikael Karlsson
Code BEAM STO

Playing with NIFs and Elixir

TALK LEVEL: BEGINNERS / INTERMEDIATE

The BEAM meets hard realtime and plays music on Linux. This talk sums up some experiences when trying to build some sound synthesis software in Elixir for realtime use.

Some questions asked, and hopefully answered:

  • How good can the Erlang VM meet hard real-time requirements?
  • Can an old-time Erlanger learn and appreciate Elixir?

The work was very much inspired by the talk "Distributed Jamming and Composition with Sonic Pi and Erlang" by Sam Aaron and Joe Armstrong at the EUC 2017.
