Erlang Keynote: Armstrong on Software: Erlang & SMP

26th June 2008 in London at Sekforde Street

This SkillsCast was filmed at Erlang eXchange 2008

Coming Soon

The world is concurrent - but most applications are written in sequential programming languages. This makes programming artificially difficult. From the very beginning, Erlang is designed to program concurrent, scalable distributed applications. During this keynote, Joe Armstrong, principle designer of Erlang, will talk about the challenges and opportunities for making highly reliable scalable software and Erlang's approach to concurrency and fault-tolerance. At the end of the talk, you will understand how to exploit the power of modern multi-core CPUs with Erlang.
