This month, Brendan Younger is going to lead us on a journey through dataflow oriented programming. There will be more 'presentation' than our usual meetings, but given the caliber of our members, I expect it to be quite interactive.

Abstract

This talk is all about how we might write programs that are easier to understand, easier to extend, and more robust than those we usually write today. With the rise of computing on demand and scaling everything to "web-scale", there are a lot proposals out there for how to manage the coordination and intermittent faults that accompany these larger systems. I've found what I think is the best answer at the moment, and I want to share my thoughts on it.

As a teaser, I'd like to share some of the best papers, videos, and slides I've come across relating to the topics I'll be discussing. There is no need to read them all beforehand, but you might peruse them to get in the right mindset. I will have an extensive annotated bibliography prepared for the talk if you'd like to dig deeper into any of these.

I'll be presenting with HTML slides, so if you'd like to follow along, try out some of the links, etc. bring your own laptop to the meeting.
