In August 18, 2016 we had IT Camp Summer Community Event in Cluj-Napoca. There were more than 55 people that attended to this event. In comparison with past events, we dedicated more time for networking between the sessions and at the end of the event.
There were two session in the afternnon. The first one was about .NET Security (including .NET Core) and the seccond one was about how we can write actor based concurrency using Elixir. Personally I discover a new word that Elixir has and is available for more than 30 years in Erland world. Seeing a system that has availability with 8 nines (99.99999) is something impressive, but thinking that such a system was availalbe 25 years ago is more impressive.
As usualy a big THANK YOU to all attendies and people that were involved behind the scene. And another THANK YOU to our sponsors that made this event possible:
You can find below the abstract to sessions and the slides from each of them. At the end of the post you can find pictures from the event.
See you next time!
.NET Security (Radu Vunvulea)
Abstract: When is the last time when you pushed an update to .NET framework in a production environment? Did you define an updated process of .NET framework for production environments? Is the support team aware about what can happen if a security update is not pushed to the machines?
In this session we will take a look on some security problems that .NET framework has and what can happen if we don't take security into account. We will take a look on different versions of .NET (including .NET Core). Best practives related to this topic will be covered and debated.
Actor based concurrency with Elixir
Abstract: Because of increased demand for interconnected systems(IOT, SAAS) we need new improved ways of handling reliable (soft)real-time systems. One battle-tested approach is based on the Actor Model pioneered by Erlang and brought to the masses by Elixir.
Topics that will be covered:
- short introduction to functional programming principles with examples in Elixir
- actor model concurrency: why is it needed, advantages & disadvantages
- OTP patterns for handling agents: GenServer & Supervisor
