Yes, you can choose Erlang for your new open source project

Even if Erlang technical relevance has been proven on large scale applications, the choice is still being questioned when you want to kickoff an open source project. Indeed, while Erlang community is still expanding, as of now it remains small compared to mainstream languages.

Even though, we were crazy enough to decide to use Erlang as the core technology of U.C.Engine, our young open source project. This presentation will share our thinking, debates and doubts that led to that decision, we will also discuss the specific actions that we implemented to help U.C.Engine grow.

This presentation should be more of a conversation and contributors to other open source projects are welcome to join and share with the audience.

Target audience: Anyone interested in using Erlang for an open source project.

Talk objectives: share with the audience how we can create a gradual contribution curve for an open-source Erlang project.
