Joe Armstrong is a retired computer scientist. He got his grey hairs inventing Erlang, starting a few companies, writing a few books, doing some research and teaching people to program.

Joe Armstrong's talk:

The Forgotten Ideas in Computer Science

In the early days of computing there were many good ideas that were 'before their time' and for one reason or another, these ideas were dropped!

As time passes, perhaps we should revisit some of these ideas.

What were the good ideas that we have dropped?

Which ideas should be resurrected?

What were the silly idea of the past and what can we learn from these?

In this talk, I'll visit ideas, old and new and see how they relate to the current needs of our community and our current work.

I'll probably also rant on about Erlang and Elixir and how they can be used to solve some of the ideas that we have forgotten about.
