S**t happens – Are you Prepared?


By Erlang Central | Published: March 18, 2013



Staying agile as businesses scale is tough and filled with conflicts – data models and processes become more rigid, while new use cases for data keep showing up. On top of this, your clients (and co-workers!) will find new ways to break things, ways that you could never have imagined in your wildest dreams.  This is the domain of The Erlang Way – not just for your application and/or your systems, but for your entire organization.
Join me as I take you through the application of the Erlang mindset to all aspects of your business (with pictures!)
Talk objectives: Learn why loose coupling, agility, and fault-tolerance should be characteristics of every facet of your organization – not just your applications
Target audience: People who work in groups of > 1 developer
