Nathan Aschbacher throws down on his favorite Erlang topic:
Learning Erlang made me a better engineer and architect.
Even if you don't think you have a use-case for Erlang, don't have an interest in functional programming, and find reading Prolog inspired syntax directly proportional to your increased consumption of Excedrin... according to Nathan Aschbacher (currently Chief Architect at Snapflow and previously Principal Consulting Architect at Basho) you should learn Erlang anyway.
Nathan will be presenting on his path to Erlang and functional programming, his initial disdain, his later begrudging respect, and finally his eventual love and nostalgia for all things Erlang-y.
