Malformed Core Dumps – Episode 1 – Mark Allen Interview (Part 1 of 2)

Podcast Introduction

Welcome everyone to the Malformed Core Dumps podcast! This is your host, Chad Gibbons, and this is our very first episode of this podcast, so a big thank you for checking us out.

So, what’s this podcast all about? In short, it’s about personal story-telling from technology industry practitioners about their career journey.

We’ll have interviews with folks about their own experiences, and will likely go off on tangents about technology topics we find interesting.

My goal for this podcast isn’t a secret: I’m hoping to take the artificial barriers to entry out of our industry, both for people thinking about joining the field, and those who have already been involved for a long time.

Episode 1 Notes

 

 

Case Study: Micro-services using Erlang

At the Erlang User Conference 2017 (EUC17) in Stockholm Sweden, I presented our experience of how Alert Logic moved to a new micro-services architecture using our preferred programming language: Erlang.

Alert Logic had been using Erlang for years before, but we really did not have a holistic platform for building applications. A small team of us went off and build a new product for the company, and in doing so build a new application platform using micro-services patterns and written in the Erlang programming language.
