Kresten Krab Thorup introduces Erjang, an Erlang VM based on the JVM, disclosing some of its internal workings and challenges building it.
Fred Hebert introduces two strategies for handling overload -load-shedding and back-pressure- along with different ways to make them work in Erlang focusing on the importance of planning for overload.
Benoît Chesneau discusses creating, scaling and reusing HTTP connections, summarizing techniques used to reduce memory usage in Erlang and ways to handle massive client connections efficiently.
Brian Troutwine shares insight on using Erlang for a highly concurrent and very low latency bidding system implemented by Adroll.
Joe Armstrong describes the foundations of fault tolerant computation and the basic properties a system should have in order to be able to function in an adequate manner despite the occurrence of hardware and software errors, summarizing the key features of Erlang and showing how they can be used for programming fault-tolerant and scalable systems on multi-core clusters.
