Presentation: "Erlang's Open Telecom Platform (OTP) Framework"

Time: Monday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Salon C


Erlang, a concurrency-oriented functional programming language, comes equipped with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP) framework. Don't let the name fool you: OTP is useful across numerous domains and is in no way limited to just telecom applications. OTP provides common patterns, facilities, and capabilities generally useful for all concurrent distributed applications. In this talk, Steve will cover details of how OTP works, what problems it solves, and show some examples of how to use OTP. Attendees need not have any prior knowledge of Erlang or OTP.
