Miriam Pena is giving the talk 'BEAM EXTREME; DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!' at Code Beam SF

Hyatt Centric Fisherman's Wharf, SF
March 01, 2019 10:35am PST

Who can’t use an extra performance boost now than then? This talk collects a set of outrageous stunts and maybe-controversial defying acts I have seen and sometimes made in production, that can give the Erlang Virtual Machine that extra speed or memory edge on different scenarios. Warning! Don’t copy-paste these at home like if they came straight from Stack Overflow, with great power comes great responsibility.

Miriam loves to architect distributed, scalable, high performance, high concurrency, and high availability systems. Bonus point if they are written in Erlang/Elixir. She is a Staff Engineer at AdRoll, designing critical parts of their AdServers/RTB infrastructure and organizer of the Erlang and Elixir meetup in San Francisco. Prior to AdRoll, she provided Erlang specialized consultancy and studied Computer Science Engineering from La Coruña University in Spain. Voted one of the women to watch in 2018 by Women 2.0. She published some open source libraries such as mero, a scalable and lightweight client for Memcached and Spillway for load shedding.
