Embedded Erlang : Experiments with the BeagleBone BlackAnuj
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
There is a close similiarity in the way which embedded systems are developed, and the paradigms involved in functional programming.
Error's will ALWAYS occur & The system must NEVER go down
With the rise of homebrewed 3D printing, UAVs and IoT, the need for creating a robust programming environment is more than ever. It becomes close to impossible for casual dabblers to take their ideas to a level beyond the "maker"ware.
In this talk, I will be talking about different efforts under embedded Erlang. There will be a demo on the process involved in building a simple application i.e. LED blink. I will then show the key highlights of a slightly more complicated application, and then how one would go about designing an embedded application.
Perhaps it's too early to tell, but I think something like the Nerves Project is the answer here. We need a community driven platform for creating great embedded applications using Erlang.
