Two nice articles or blog posts have been recently published on the Erlang programming language.
Two nice articles or blog posts have been recently published on the Erlang programming language:
- UnixReview: Reliably Multi-thread Calculations with Erlang, by Cameron Laird and Kathryn Soraiz. This is a nice introduction on how to distribute and run some code on a cluster of Erlang nodes. From the article: “What’s important long-term, though, is Erlang’s ability to promote correct composition of programs which can be distributed.”
- O’Reilly Radar: Threads Considered Harmful, by Nat Torkington. This blog post explains that with the rise of multicore based computing, Erlang is becoming increasingly usefull: “This paper reflects two trends we see here at Radar: the first is towards multicore systems and the growing importance of distributed execution; the second is the increasing relevance of languages like Erlang, Haskell, and E.”
