Speaker announcement: Erik Corry
The sixth speaker at myConf will really help us deliver on our promise to you, the visitors of myConf. The tagline of this year's myConf is "Maximizing value" and Erik Corry has an experience or two of value that reaches many.
Virtual machines in history
Join Erik for a historical view of his work on virtual machines, regular expression engines, garbage collection and language development that empathises with the users.
During this, he will talk about how your tools should not hate you, rant more about tools that stab you in the back, especially Golang, and end up with how the Toit GC manages your memory without stealing your memory.
A few words about the speaker
Originally posted on LinkedIn.
Have you used an app today? Or maybe you have used Chrome or siblings? If so, the next speaker of myConf, Erik Corry, has been involved.
Erik was also a key player for developing DartVM, the runtime that Flutter uses. Loads of apps (and growing) are created with Flutter.
Maximizing value, eh? :)
But Erik hasn't stopped there of course. Now he is a key player for developing Toit. It's giving good developer experience to IoT. While conserving energy usage to an absolute minimum, richer and richer applications can be developed. To prove that you don't need fancy hardware and loads of energy to create your applications, Erik took on the Advent of Code challenges on a 2 USD microcontroller!
This could be a huge step in the direction of a smaller environmental footprint by our industry, while we are helping out to create a better world! Come to Erik's presentation at myConf and learn more of the how and what for your part in the endeavor that we are all up for!
A bonus might be that Erik teaches you how to recognize serial killers, programming language creators and math geniuses!
