EUC 2014 – Paul Butcher – The Parallelism and Concurrency Landscape: Where does Erlang Fit?


By Erlang Central | Published: August 1, 2014



Developers are flocking to Erlang because of its superb support for concurrency. Erlang’s actor-based approach is particularly strong, but it’s not the only way.

What approaches are other languages and ecosystems taking? And what lessons can the Erlang community learn from them?

Talk objectives:

– There’s more to parallelism than multiple cores

– Parallelism and concurrency related, but different

– There’s more to concurrency than actors

Target audience:

– Anyone who is interested in understanding the wide range of approaches being adopted within the software field to help us deal with the increasing importance of parallelism and concurrency.
