Me and a friend of mine talked about how bad the performance of the Minecraft server was and its lack of scaling. We thought on how we could solve this with Erlang, and the outcome of that discussion is the Minecraft-sERLver. It’s not by any means finished, but it’s a nice project with lots of interesting challenges.
Check out the project on github: https://github.com/burbas/Minecraft-sERLver
You can now download an Erlang package for the Android platform. The package is available here togheter with installation instructions.
My master thesis, as I named “Socius”, is almost complete. Socius is an application that enables mobile devices to automatically share files between each other. It’s completely written in Erlang and today I got it running on the Android platform. I will post a more detailed post about Socius and what it can do.
