Event Handling in Erlang - When is gen_event the Answer?

The OTP includes a behaviour for generic event handling that sees regular use in a wide variety of Erlang applications. We will review the implementation, discuss the preferred conditions for a gen_event notification system and the various ways in which it is deployed in Apache CouchDB.  We will also introduce a new application developed at Cloudant to overcome some of the deficiencies of gen_event in dynamic, high concurrency environments.
