Pavlo Baron
Author and Erlang Player

Pavlo Baron lives and works in Munich. Starting his IT life 20 years ago by implementing a bunch of printer drivers for MS-DOS in C and x86 Assembly, he has gained knowledge of and put in to practice a wide variety of technologies. His first Erlang experience dates from 2005, as he evaluated a reliable technology for parallel/distributed execution of a proprietary sequential calculation engine written in C++. Currently, he is head of engineering in a telecommunication company working on complex integration solutions, but his private passion is hacking Erlang code and playing with Big Data, something he spends his own time doing. In many cases, he would choose Erlang/OTP over some other well known, so called enterprise adopted monsters. Pavlo has written two German books: "Pragmatic IT Architecture" and "Fragile Agile".

Mario vs. Donkey Kong ... oh, pardon... Erlang/OTP vs. Enterprise Java

Forget all the flame wars: let's objectively compare Erlang/OTP with the Enterprise Java. Feature by feature, aspect by aspect, use case by use case. Language, concepts, ideas, paradigms, patterns. Every technology has it's right to exist - you just need your brain to be online, your eyes to be open and your use case not to be run-of-the-mill. This talk explains why it's important to pick the right tool for the job and when this tool is Erlang/OTP and not Enterprise Java.
