Tribute To Joe Armstrong

Jun 18, 2019 · Kraków, Poland

Hi all,

Let's make the June meet-up a tribute to Joe.

Michał Ślaski will speak for us (abstract below) but please submit your own talks too (you can do so in the comment section below).

Tribute to Joe Armstrong - Michał Ślaski
Computer Science describes a number of concurrency models, which were implemented in practice over the last 50 years. In the 80’s Joe Armstrong made some observations about concurrent languages and stated that such a language should do three things at a very primitive level: message passing should be extremely fast, context switching should be extremely fast and there should be a built-in error processing mechanism. His observations paved a way to Erlang-style concurrency and later to his PhD thesis. In this talk we discuss the history of concurrency models and Joe’s contribution to Computer Science.
