Life of an Erlang process

Life of an Erlang process

A high-level introduction to the Erlang programming language: among other topics, the talk covers Erlang processes, message passing, supervision trees, the let-it-crash approach and more.
We unfold the skeleton of an Erlang process, explaining how the functional model makes the implementation of Erlang processes straightforward. We reveal the recipe of the secret Erlang sauce which makes possible the creation of reliable, scalable systems which never go down.
