Erlanger @ Cisco NSO core

Viktória is passionate about security, consistency models, highly available and scalable software. She first came in contact with Erlang in 2010 when she joined the RefactorErl project. Has been active in R&D, and of course in Erlang, ever since. She was contributing to FP7 EU projects (PharaPhrase, RELEASE, SYNCFREE), has published her results in academic and industrial conferences and journals. She believes that research is to be consumed by industry, and promotes research that has immediate impact and helps software engineers. She joined Cisco Systems in 2019. She is an NSO core engineer, she solves (network orchestration) problems in Erlang everyday.

Security of the BEAM

BEAMers handle customer's data with utmost care since we believe protecting data is one of the most basic obligations of any company. Achieving our goal requires more effort since the Erlang ecosystem was designed for private networks where the concern about malicious users performing attacks was not given relevance. Therefore, every day we must have a security aware mindset: we must put on our security hat to design, develop and review code changes going into production. 

Join Viktória to explore the challenges that today's Erlang systems are faced with, analyse the vulnerabilities exists in Erlang, learn how to apply the principles of secure design to software projects running on the BEAM and learn about the tools exists today that can help in security reviews.

Think in Erlang!

Have you ever felt that a solution is too complicated?

In this talk you are going to learn a universal recipe that you can use everyday to provide simple solutions to complex problems. We start with the philosophy of Erlang and learn its key messages. Then we study how these core thoughts are baked into Erlang/OTP, and why they help. Then we are going to see how Cisco NSO engineers created a patented algorithm to solve a complex problem: orchestrating network services. Yes, using the same recipe!

OBJECTIVES

  • Learn a new problem solving method.
  • Attendees will be able to look at problems from a different angle. Since they will not only code but think in Erlang, they will be able to propose simple solutions to complex problems.

Unite and conquer

TALK LEVEL: KEYNOTE

Divisions are popular in our days often comparing “them” and “us”: be it research vs industry, men vs women, Erlang vs Elixir... but unity is what makes us stronger and enables us to aim for new horizons.

In this talk, Natalia, Laura, and Viktória will discuss their vision on creating fault-tolerant, scalable opportunities together to achieve diverse ambitions.

All BEAMers unite!
