Declarative distributed concurrency in Scala by Sergei Winitzki
Scala Developers you'll want to know about this framework! Software Engineer and Scientist Sergei Winitzkipresents the Distributed Chemical Machine (DCM) which is a purely functional, fully declarative framework for parallel, concurrent, and distributed computing in Scala. How can this help your coding?
I present the Distributed Chemical Machine (DCM) - a purely functional, fully declarative framework for parallel, concurrent, and distributed computing in Scala. The DCM can automatically run multi-core concurrent code on any number of machines connected to (one or more) Zookeeper instances. Zookeeper provides data coordination, persistence, and fault tolerance, allowing the programmer to focus on the distributed application logic in a peer-to-peer architecture. The DCM builds upon the Chemical Machine (http://chemist.io), a data-driven, message-passing concurrency paradigm that significantly improves upon the Actor Model, achieving automatic parallelism and a higher level of declarative expressiveness for concurrency. Previously I implemented the (single-JVM, multi-core) Chemical Machine as an embedded DSL in Scala. With very few code changes and little configuration, a Chemical Machine-based application can now be ported to the DCM and run on a cluster, achieving automatic distribution.
