A multi-user game, web site, cloud application, or networked database can have thousands of users all interacting at the same time. You need a powerful, industrial-strength tool to handle the really hard problems inherent in parallel, concurrent environments. You need Erlang. In this second edition of the bestselling Programming Erlang, youll learn how to write parallel programs that scale effortlessly on multicore systems.
Using Erlang, youll be surprised at how easy it becomes to deal with parallel problems, and how much faster and more efficiently your programs run. Thats because Erlang uses sets of parallel processes-not a single sequential process, as found in most programming languages.
