Protocols - The Glue for Applications



Torben Hoffmann talks about how to design systems with asynchronous message passing between processes that do not share any memory, showing how the Golden Trinity of Erlang - share nothing processes, fail-fast and failure handling - relates to asynchronous protocols and how this mix of features provides a good solution for exploitation of the new multicore and distributed architectures.


Torben Hoffmann is the CTO of Erlang Solutions and has been working with Erlang in Motorola and Issuu as technical architect and developer since 2006. He has talked about his Motorola achievements at Erlang eXchange 2008 and EUC 2010.
