Program (in progress)

- Using Barrel to build your own P2P data platform, by Benoit Chesneau, Founder, Enki Multimedia.
Abstract: Barrel is a database Benoit wrote from scratch over the past two years that can be embedded in an Erlang or Elixir application like Mnesia. With Barrel, you can easily bring and keep a view (complete or partial) of your data inside your application and replicate it between your different machines.
This talk will describe how you can use Barrel to quickly create your own peer-to-peer data platform with different storage and replication strategies. It will also shows the different tools supported by Barrel, to operate and monitor your cluster on premise or on the "cloud".
Different examples, codes and patterns will be presented.

- erlang/elixir as an orchestrator from infra to business, by Arnaud Wetzel, CTO, KBRW.
Abstract: Originally designed for network appliances, erlang/OTP platform is now widely used in large web platforms, for its distribution and reliability capacities. The elixir language, compatible with erlang/OTP, now brings capacities for building complex software systems thanks to its DSL-friendly syntax.
Through real business cases, we will present how we use elixir and erlang lanaguages to orchestrate robust complex systems, from devops tools to business processes.
