Strange Loop 2021 talk: “Functional distributed systems beyond request/response”


Things practiced: trying to give talk while mostly unable to string sentences together, computers

Tools used: the Paper app, a profusion of time + patience from those around me

Got a chance to speak at Strange Loop this year, in person; the fact of a tech conference in all its normalcy like a miracle, that we’ve gotten through so far this year at all. Sometimes survival feels like a great achievement and maybe all the cruelties and losses and things we’ve forgotten are just life. Anyway it’s about event-driven programming. Time washes us all away.
