What Can Be Done with Java but Should Better Be Done with Erlang



Pavlo Baron presents code samples when in his opinion Erlang is a better fit than Java.


Pavlo Baron is Lead Architect with codecentric AG. Pavlo's passion is hacking code and playing with distributed systems and large data sets. In many cases, he would choose Erlang/OTP over some other well known, so called enterprise adopted technologies. Pavlo is frequent conference speaker and has written three German books: "Erlang/OTP", "Pragmatic IT Architecture" and "Fragile Agile".

About the conference

This year’s Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2012 had an A-list sell-out line-up of speakers which included Erlang Inventors Mike Williams and Robert Virding discussing software approaches used in the industry and the unique features of the Erlang VM and a Keynote talk from Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation.

    Hi Pavlon,

    I bought an e-book copy of your Erlang/OTP book. My German is not great so i have needed Google translate and such to read, a bit poor. Looks like ver good book. Your English being good - may i ask whether and when an English translation is due?
