EUC 2014 – Paul Butcher – The Parallelism and Concurrency Landscape: Where does Erlang Fit?
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?
– There’s more to parallelism than multiple cores
– Parallelism and concurrency related, but different
– There’s more to concurrency than actors
– 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.
