Flow is the programming language FoundationDB is implemented in. It brings an actor-based concurrency model to C++. Flow is specifically optimized two write I/O heavy, highly concurrent software.

This talk is meant for people who either are interested in contributing code to core FoundationDB, want to be able to read FoundationDB’s source code, are interested in distributed systems and want to evaluate whether Flow could be a good choice for them, or just want to learn a cool new language. You will learn how to write simple actors, how the underlying code works, and what the most common pitfalls are people encounter when writing in Flow.
