Programming Erlang: Software for a Concurrent World by Joe Armstrong

By Joe Armstrong

Erlang solves probably the most urgent difficulties dealing with builders at the present time: how one can write trustworthy, concurrent, high-performance structures. It's used around the world through businesses who have to produce trustworthy, effective, and scalable purposes. put money into studying Erlang now.

Moore's legislation is the remark that the volume you are able to do on a unmarried chip doubles each years. yet Moore's legislation is taking a detour. instead of generating swifter and speedier processors, businesses comparable to Intel and AMD are generating multi-core units: unmarried chips containing , 4, or extra processors. in the event that your courses aren't concurrent, they'll simply run on a unmarried processor at a time. Your clients will imagine that your code is slow.

Erlang is a programming language designed for development hugely parallel, allotted, fault-tolerant platforms. it's been used commercially for a few years to construct giant fault-tolerated structures that run for years with minimum failures.

Erlang courses run seamlessly on multi-core pcs: this implies your Erlang software should still run much swifter on a four center processor than on a unmarried center processor, all with no you having to alter a line of code.

Erlang combines principles from the realm of useful programming with options for development fault-tolerant platforms to make a strong language for construction the hugely parallel, networked functions of the future.

This publication provides Erlang and useful programming within the usual Pragmatic type. And it's written by means of Joe Armstrong, one of many creators of Erlang.

It comprises instance code you'll be capable to construct upon. moreover, the e-book includes the total resource code for 2 fascinating applications:

A SHOUTcast server which you could use to move tune to each computing device in your home, and a full-text indexing and seek engine which could index gigabytes of data.
how one can write courses that run on dozens or maybe countless numbers of neighborhood and distant processors. See the best way to write strong purposes that run even within the face of community and failure, utilizing the Erlang programming language.
