Erlang in The Land of Lisp

by Jan Stępień

Published February 11, 2016 in Programming

As seen on PolyConf 2016, Clojure Remote 2016 and :clojureD 2016.

This talk is dedicated to lessons we’ve learned while designing, developing, and deploying to production our very first Erlang project. The audience of this talk will learn about differences between Clojure and Erlang, both at the linguistic level as well as, even more importantly, at the level of underlying virtual machines. I’m going to discuss how Erlang challenges our methods of building systems in Clojure. I’ll use our new Erlang-based project as a source of concrete differences.
