Lessons learned – how we use Erlang to analyze millions of messages per day

« back to Presentations Download Presentation Download

At Semiocast, a start-up founded in 2009, we use Erlang since day one to
fetch and process millions of tweets and social media conversations. In
this talk, we will present lessons we have learned in terms of code
deployment, architectural design, Erlang technologies used and
integration with native code. In particular, we will cover how we use
OTP and code change, the various kinds of drivers (NIF, Linked-In,
External, C-node), our usage of HiPE and dialyzer, and a few things we
wish we knew back in 2009.
