Learn how to think like an Erlang expert and design highly available long running systems.
Many people have heard of Erlang, but very few have actually used it on production systems. In this talk I will be presenting Erlang/OTP in depth, and what makes this ecosystem interesting for building highly scalable fault-tolerant software.
