Until the end of 2009 Erlang/OTP was largely developed behind closed doors at Ericsson with only basic opportunities to contribute by the community. The move to Github has changed the ecosystem drastically, making it possible for developers outside of Ericsson to contribute. However, contributors need to follow guidelines to make everybody's life easier. This change has also allowed others to improve the process where possible, thus helping to raise the profile of Erlang as a mature and active open source project.

This talk explains the development process for Erlang and highlights how external contributions are being handled. Further the efforts of Erlang Solutions to provide continuous integration and package generation for all contributions are presented. Finally the future of Erlang development will be discussed.
