An Epic One-Day Erlang Conference in Washington, DC
This talk will cover a bit of Erlang's history in Telecom and how 2600hz is using the language today to provide truly massive core architectures for some of the biggest telcos on the planet. This talk will cover some of the pains we've worked through while highlighting the reasons Erlang is the best language for Telecom (or at least why we think so :D). We'll also discuss some of the other installations we've seen and why Erlang is a better fit. This is an intermediate talk.
