|+# Bloom: A language for disorderly distributed programming #|
|+## by Christopher Meiklejohn ##|
|+### Abstract ###|
|+Traditional programming languages use a model of computation where|
|+individual instructions are executed in order. However, when building|
|+distributed systems this model fails to match the reality of how your|
|+application code is actually executed. Bloom is a language which allows|
|+programmers to build applications as a series of unordered statements|
|+while also providing facilities for imposing a particular ordering of|
|+events when necessary.|
|+During this talk we will explore building applications in Bud, which is|
|+a prototype of Bloom implemented as a domain specific language in Ruby.|
|+We will discuss the concepts of logical monotonicity, disorderly|
|+collections, the CALM principle which is the root of the Bloom language,|
|+and how to use he Bloom language to identify critical sections of your|
|+code where a coordiation library should be used to ensure consistency.|
|+### Additional Notes ###|
|+Christopher Meiklejohn is a Software Engineer with Basho Technologies, Inc.|
|+where he focuses on building rich web applications for Riak using Erlang and|
|+startup based in Providence where he maintained critical infrastructure|
|+components written in Ruby. Christopher currently serves as one of the|
|+maintainers of Rubygems.org.|
|+Applications, co-organized DowncityJS, and has most recently spoken at Web|
|+Unleashed '12 and Clojure/West '13. Christopher is also a graduate student in|
|+computer science at Brown University, in Providence RI.|
