An enormous amount of experience, combined.
Erlang and OTP in Action teaches you the concepts of concurrent programming and the use of Erlang's message-passing model. It walks you through progressively more interesting examples, building systems in Erlang and integrating them with C/C++, Java, and .NET applications, including SOA and web architectures.
About the Technology
Erlang is an adaptable and fault tolerant functional programming language originally designed for the unique demands of the telecom industry. With Erlang/OTP's interpreter, compiler, database server, and libraries, developers are finding they can satisfy tough uptime and performance requirements in all kinds of other industries.

- Keep running, even during code upgrades
- Recover gracefully from errors
- Scale unchanged from one to many processors
- Handle many simultaneous connections, and
- Maintain fast response times
