Panel Discussion: Erlang and the Web

When you think of Web application development today, you may think of Ruby, Python, or PHP. Erlang, however, is not known as a language for Web development. Ironically, Erlang's unique features make it ideal as a Web platform - specifically its ability to handle massive scale while maintaining high reliability.
In this session, you'll hear from a panel of Web application experts who use Erlang to build Web servers and frameworks. Each will present a proven Erlang technology that demonstrates how Erlang can be leveraged to build Web applications. You'll learn where Erlang shines and where it struggles in this important field.
