HIGHLIGHT Erlang and OTP in Action offers an introduction to concurrent programming and shows how to develop distributed systems. DESCRIPTION Erlang, together with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), is a functional programming model designed to facilitate concurrency programming that exploits the capabilities and speed of multi-processor hardware. Erlang applications run fast, recover quickly from errors, integrate with other systems, and can be updated dynamically at run-time. Erlang and OTP in Action walks readers through the practical steps of building systems in Erlang and integrating them with real-world C/C++, Java, and .NET applications. Hands-on examples progress from simple to complex real-world distributed applications and system design. Going beyond the nuts and bolts of Erlang, the book offers a comprehensive view of how concurrency relates to SOA and web technologies. KEY POINTS Strong early demand through MEAP Numerous hands-on, real-world examples Concise and developer-centric "In Action" style Examples include C++, Java and .NET integration
