[SLIDES]Natalia Chechina @nchechina - Scaling robots and other stuff with Erlang
I’ll talk about scalability and fault tolerance features of distributed Erlang. In particular, what makes it so good for large scale distributed applications on commodity hardware, where devices are inherently non-reliable and can disappear and re-appear at any moment.

The talk is based on experience of leading research on developing Scalable Distributed Erlang (SD Erlang -- a small extension of Erlang for distributed scalability) and integrating Erlang in robotics. So, I’ll share rationale behind design decisions for SD Erlang, lessons learned, advantages, limitations, and plans for the further development. And talk about benefits of Erlang in distributed robotics, initial findings, and plans.

[SLIDES]Sam Elamin @Samelamin - Metrics driven development
Moving to a distributed system will solve all your problems and you will be in developer heaven. Right? Not exactly, having hundreds of services doing different things means it's increasingly difficult knowing where exactly production issues are hiding. In this talk Sam Elamin will relate his real life experience working on a distributed system dealing with £100,000 worth of transactions every hour. Sam will cover monitoring and how to develop your features based on how your customers use your platform and, most importantly, business metrics. Sam will cover how to implement metrics in your application and setting up dashboards to gaining visibility into what is happening in your production system right now. We'll also go through some helpful techniques to help you convince your domain experts that gaining this insight is invaluable to keeping your competitive advantage. As an extra treat come and see how JUSTEAT time travels in production, using open source software that can be set up in a matter of days!
