How AOL Uses Erlang

Pero Subasic, chief architect of R&D at AOL, will present at the Erlang Factory event this month in London on AOL’s Erlang framework for real-time computational advertising.

Erlang, originally created at Ericcson in the 80s, has seen a resurgence in recent years. For example, Facebook built its real-time messaging system in Erlang, and the NoSQL databases Apache CouchDB and Riak were both built in Erlang.

We shared several resources for learning Erlang here.
