    Erlang is in many ways quite old though many of the problems for which it used are quite modern. The Erlang language and system was designed around a set of requirements for telecom systems. They were distributed, massively concurrent systems which had to scale with demand, be capable of handling massive peak loads and never fail. The Erlang concurrency and error-handling model was developed around these requirements. We will describe the development of the language and the design of systems based on the Erlang showing how well the functional paradigm suits attacking these types of problems. We will also look at the further development with the introduction of new languages in the Erlang environment - the Erlang ecosystem.

    My employer has a successful suite of products that grew out of a monolithic app. When the monolith was split into different products and services one particular service had requirements that were naturally met by  Erlang: distributed execution,  fault tolerance, and horizontal scalability. I've been working on an implementation of this service that meets the above requirements while retaining the existing interface and features. 
     
    In this presentation, I'll explain how I've created a solution combining Erlang with an existing heterogeneous stack that includes the JVM (Java/Scala), R, Perl, Python, and Javascript. The presentation is a summary of my  ongoing work on this solution, the key challenges I faced, their solutions, and the future road map for the project.
