A whirlwind tour of the Erlang language. This session will be based loosely on Chapter 2 from Erlang and OTP in Action. This tour will serve to teach Erlang to any very astute developers that don’t know it yet and be a nice refresher for those that already know it to some degree. Even advanced users should be able to take some new information on the Erlang language itself out of this session.
Here is where you jump into the meat of things. In this section you use behaviours, supervision, and the application structure. These are the fundamental building blocks for the OTP framework which is at the heart of how Erlang delivers on its promises of high concurrency, scalability and high fault tollerance.
