Abstract

Erlang's OTP framework is a set of concurrency-based design patterns that are used to build scalable and robust fault-tolerant systems. It consists of a standardized and battle-tested set of building blocks - called "behaviors" - that function as middleware in these systems and make it easy to reason about code. In this talk, we'll walk through the underpinnings of this framework, and take a look at how it's implemented, how you can "improve" this (and why you probably don't need to, and in fact, shouldn't!)
