Paul Jones is Giving the Following Talks
Erlang and PaaS, panel debate

What services could a PaaS provide to make Erlang easier to deploy and operate in production? Are there any Erlang features that are fundamentally incompatible with PaaS? How can some of Erlang/OTP's more unique features (distributed processes, hot code upgrades) be made PaaS compatible?

In this session, we'll explore these topics through an open discussion with the aim of discovering how best to make a PaaS where Erlang feels like a first class citizen.

Talk objectives: To generate an open discussion about how to progress Erlang as a strong Platform-as-a-Service tenant

Target audience: Anyone interested in deployment techniques for Erlang
