Promise of a better future - a talk about a concurrency model called futures
Rahul Goma Phulore
Backend Engineer - Soundcloud
I am a SoundClouder and have been writing software professionally for the past four years. I have a great deal of interest in programming languages and type systems. I believe there is an immense amount of wisdom lying in things dismissed under "academic" pejorative, which I humbly aim to bring to the mainstream, and help improve the software situation. The last couple of projects I worked on had concurrency at their heart, and employed some novel techniques in the field to a great effect. I wish to share those learnings and experiences, and help popularize the ideas that they found to work for them.
