Joe Armstrong presents ECC, an optimizing compiler running on LLVM for writing C compilers for unusual architectures, for implementing DSLs and for experiments with JIT compilation.
Joe Armstrong is the principal inventor of Erlang and coined the term "Concurrency Oriented Programming". At Ericsson he developed Erlang and was chief architect of the Erlang/OTP system. In 1998 he formed Bluetail, which developed all its products in Erlang. In 2003 he obtain his PhD from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. He is author of the book "Software for a concurrent world".
The Erlang Factory is an event that focuses on Erlang - the computer language that was designed to support distributed, fault-tolerant, soft-realtime applications with requirements for high availability and high concurrency. The main part of the Factory is the conference - a two-day collection of focused subject tracks with an enormous opportunity to meet the best minds in Erlang and network with experts in all its uses and applications.

Same problem here :(
Re: Slides freeze
Instead of just passing in the architecture as the target, allow a pair of values to be passed, CPU/GPU and the architecture which could be specific or generic. CPU/GPU annotations in code or detection on loop length could tag execution of code in other places before compilation/optimization to allow optimized code on where it will run(CPU or GPU or either).

I've noticed it in other presentation videos on InfoQ too.
