    Keynote talk from Erlang User Conference 2016 http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2016/ Slides here: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2016... In this presentation, we take a look at a quick history of Erlang tooling and user experience for newcomers, and try to find reasons for why we are able to have so many fantastic tools but make it so hard to use them properly in a project, and attempt to propose solutions so the community can catch up with the rest of programming languages and provide a b ...

    Most software engineers and programmers like to spend their time implementing new features and exploring new ideas. Sadly for them, 70% to 80% of a product's life cycles are spent in maintenance mode. Why does it take so much time? Generally, of most the maintenance time is spent in code, trying to understand how the system works, building a mental model of it, so that we can later change the program safely. Erlang and OTP make it possible to reduce the effort required for this mainte ...

    2011-10-31 Erlang Central

    Presentations

    As a developer or support engineer you have probably spent enormous energy and time manually analyzing log files, trying to find out what went wrong, when and why. Using Exago, now you can automatically parse and process log files, and check them against an abstract model of the system. In case of failure, it will report the abstract state where the error occurred, and the events that led to the point of failure. In this 60 minute tutorial we will cover, how to: specify relations between log ...
