Brian Troutwine examines how functional programming and other concepts championed by Erlang can yield reactive services with just a change in thinking and a different approach to design.
Ryan Cromwell introduces Elixir, a , functional distributed meta programming language inspired by Ruby and compiling to Erlang VM, covering pattern matching, pipelines and tail-call recursion.
Torben Hoffmann shares a number of patterns from Erlang systems, modeled through Object-Process Methodology, discussing their impact on business needs.
Rick Reed shares scalability and reliability insights, techniques, and hacks used and learned developing WhatsApp on an Erlang/FreeBSD infrastructure.
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 discusses fault tolerant systems, summarizing the key features of Erlang and showing how they can be used for programming fault-tolerant and scalable systems on multi-core clusters.
Joe Armstrong discusses how fault tolerance relates to scalability and concurrency, and how Erlang helps build fault-tolerant systems on multi-core clusters.
Omer Kilic provides an overview of heterogeneous computing discussing how Erlang can help with the orchestration of different processing platforms, introduces Erlang/ALE + updates on Erlang Embedded.
Robert Virding describes how Erlang was developed to solve the concurrency and reliability requirements of telecommunications, dealing with challenges that are similar with those of cloud computing.
