Beyond OTP

By Erlang Central | Published: June 13, 2013

People tend to use gen_server all the time even when it is not the right tool for the job. But OTP is more than just gen_server. OTP is about using existing behaviours and defining your own special processes that respect OTP principles. This talk will dive deeply into OTP so that everyone can understand its philosophy, how it works, and how to best make use of it.
Talk objectives: Fully understand how OTP works.
Target audience: Erlang developers.
