When an Erlang app starts falling over in production it can seem like a daunting task getting it back up and stabilized again.  We will discuss a number of methods, both reactive and preventative, for bulletproofing Erlang apps against concurrency bottlenecks, VM quirks and the plethora of ways your code can come back to haunt you.
Talk objectives: Teach the audience how to bulletproof their Erlang code against scaling pains.
Target audience: Folks who write and support production code.
