    I’m back! Cask removed, arm in recovery :) — Let’s celebrate with some funny bits of Erlang/OTP! Up to this point, I’ve been sharing a good number of odd and/or confusing bits for and about erlangers out there. I’ll go back to that, probably next week. But, during the same period in which I collected all those battle-stories, I also found several nice bits of code and documentation that are shipped with the Erlang/OTP distribution. They go a long way to show how the language was ...

  • THE EXCEPTIONAL SERVER

    I discovered what I will show you today the first time I tried to create agen_server based behaviour in Erlang. For wpool, I think. Anyway, I forgot about it for a long time until Francesco Cesarini reminded me of it at our last company Get2Gether. This is the story of a very efficient server… …keep reading on Medium ...

    Time for a new Erlang story, kids! This one is about one of my favourite Erlang tools: dialyzer. You may know this already, but I always recommend checking all your Erlang code with dialyzer as soon as you write it. You can hear me preaching that exact thing at this Functional Geekery interview. We’re so fond of these tools (like dialyzer, xref and elvis) at Inaka, that we even created Meta Test Suites that you can use to run dialyzer as part of your common test suites every time. And that ...

  • Erlang: If I Fell In Love With You
    2016-07-19 elbrujohalcon

    Blog Featured Status

    This article is a little bit different to the funny/surprising stories I’ve been writing about Erlang, although somehow related. It is a battle-story in the sense that I found this code while debugging a production system and it shocked me almost as much as finding an exception that I couldn’t catch or a list comprehension without generators. On the other hand, this piece of code was introduced in a completely intentional way by a programmer who actually wanted it to behave in the way it di ...

    I’ve already talked about this on Inaka’s blog but I thought the list of Erlang battle-stories I’m building here won’t be complete without the story ofincomprehensible list comprehensions. Keep reading on Medium… ...

  • ejabberd 16.06 released

    Blog Status

    ejabberd development team is proud to introduce our new ejabberd release, ejabberd 16.06. As usual it includes many bug fixes, but also several improvements. The big improvement in this release is a new Access Control List (ACL) infrastructure. ACL rules are used in ejabberd config file to define fine-grained access to ejabberd features. In ejabberd 16.06, the ACL configuration has been much improved to make it both simpler to use and easier to read. Moreover, ACL and access rules are not ...

  • There are Guards and Guards

    Blog Status

    The next one in my list of Erlang battle-stories was actually published in theerlang-questions mailing list and explained by Kostis Sagonas and Doug Rohrer, but it was so WAT-provoking that I couldn’t leave it out of my list. It’s all about guards and precedence… …keep reading on Medium ...

  • Playing with Strings

    Blog Status

    In this episode of my Erlang battle-story saga I will talk about something that bugs me a lot, but I’m aware how irrelevant all this might be to most erlangers out there. It’s just because I’m picky when it comes to semantics. But, anyway, here is my rant about Erlang strings ...

  • PERISCOPE UP!
    2016-06-22 elbrujohalcon

    Blog Status

    This Erlang battle-story owns its name (and its presence on the list) to Iñaki Garay. I struggled with it once, of course, and so did he. But he also noticed how this single battle-story acted as some sort of rite of passage for Erlangers. Once you’ve found this and struggled a while with it long enough, you can consider yourself a true erlanger. Continue reading at medium… ...
