Miriam Pena

Voted One Of The Women to Watch in Tech by Women 2.0

I love architecting distributed, highly scalable and highly available systems written in Erlang. I have been an Erlang engineer for +16 years in companies all over the World, including automakers in Detroit, real time bidding advertising infrastructure in Dublin & San Francisco, social network messaging (with Ejabberd!) in Madrid, telcos in Stockholm & Egypt, embedded control systems for renewable energy power plants in Spain…

I am a founding member and have been a board member for the last 5 years of the Erlang Ecosystem Foundation and I have co-organized the Erlang & Elixir meetup in San Francisco for 2 years.

The EEF and You: Unwrapping 5 Years of the foundation

Audience: Introductory and overview

The Erlang Ecosystem Foundation (EEF) has just turned 5 years old, and it has been a whirlwind! Come and join us to recap some of the coolest EEF-funded/driven initiatives that you use every day, from faster rebar 3 builds, a JIT compiler optimized for arm64 that is saving the planet to smoother documentation navigation that is there to save our day. But that’s not all – we’ve also been hard at work fostering a more diverse and inclusive community. As we unravel these achievements, let’s also explore upcoming opportunities to collaborate, build and continue support. Find out how you can play a vital role in strengthening our community together!
