An industrial use case for Erlang and kdb+ . Do you think functional programming is only for academia? We disagree.

KX kdb+ is a column-oriented database engine with a vector-oriented functional programming language with built-in IPC and exceptional performance via utilizing vector instructions and multiple cores. It does everything very well, except for, it does only one thing at a time, and this is where Erlang helps converting a kdb+ service cluster into one that makes many concurrent clients happy.

After the lecture: Casual discussion about Erlang, kdb+, and job opportunities.

The talk will be organized as an online event, on the 3rd of February, 3 PM:
