Recorded at:

by Joe Armstrong on Jun 08, 2009 | NOTICE: The next QCon is in London, March 6-10, 2017. Join us!

This presentation explores how Erlang addresses the general problem of concurrent, real-time, fault-tolerant, and distributed parallel computing. The author argues that changes in the world of hardware and the complexity of the programs we write assure that sequential programs will decline in performance but parallel programs will increase performance.


Joe Armstrong is the principal inventor of the Erlang programming Language and author of the book Software for a concurrent world. He worked for Ericsson where he developed Erlangand in 1998 formed Bluetail, working exclusively in Erlang.
