How does Erlang deliver high reliability and throughput?

Join us on July 23rd.  Carl Wright will be our speaker and will be talking about Erlang.  As usual, food and soft drinks are provided by Atomic Object.  

Hope to see you there.

Here is Carl's description of his talk:

WhatsApp, Facebook, T-Mobile and Amazon deliver high reliability and throughput to their users with software written in Erlang. I’ll illustrate for you some of the techniques used with Erlang to do this.  We will discuss the "actor model", the "crash fast" approach and the "share nothing" method.

Using the actor model of concurrency in Erlang, we will explore how Erlang's framework of worker processes and supervisor processes deliver high reliability to users.

You will also get a tour of the OTP (Open Telecom Platform) framework that makes development and deployment of your application across multiple machines and/or cores easy as pie.

    Doesn't this fall during the same time as Lambda Jam in Chicago?

      Indeed it does. Something to enjoy for those of us that can't make Lambda Jam, perhaps?
