Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP: Implementing Robust, Fault-Tolerant Systems.pdf
Francesco Cesarini has taught Erlang/OTP for fourteen years to all parties involved in the software cycle, including students, developers, support and testers, as well as project and technical managers. He has helped set up Erlang development centres in Ireland, the US and the UK. In 1999, the year after Erlang was released as open source, Francesco moved from Sweden to London and founded Erlang Training and Consulting, a company which he is a majority shareholder of today. Simon Thompson is Professor of Logic and Computation in the Computing Laboratory of the University of Kent, where he has taught computing at undergraduate and postgraduate levels for the past twenty five years, and where he has been department head for the last six.
Design and build complex, scalable commercial-grade systems with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), the open source system developed by Ericsson and written in Erlang. With this hands-on book, you'll learn how to apply OTP libraries and techniques to develop concurrent, fault-tolerant systems with no single point of failure. Written by the authors of O'Reilly's Erlang Programming, including a member of OTP's R1 release team, this guide takes you through the basics of OTP and Erlang Design Patterns, and demonstrates how the platform can be used in a wide range of industries. If you have Erlang experience, you'll learn how to overcome key obstacles in OTP that have thwarted many other developers.
