Let there be light

Let there be light

In this talk we're going to explore the boot process of the Erlang virtual machine. We'll trace the code path from the beginning of the C main function until the Application.start/2 callback is executed. We'll see how the C code interacts with the Erlang code, how the Erlang code is loaded, what is the first Erlang code to run, and finally how applications are started.
