Would you like your applications to handle thousands of concurrent requests, effortlessly take advantage of your multi-core computer, and easily scale across clusters of machines, without masses of scaffolding obscuring your code? This introduction to the concurrency in Erlang will show you how. We’ll start by learning about the concurrency primitives built into the language and looking at example of how to use them to write programs to run on a single machine. Then we’ll see how with a minimum of additional work we can make these and other applications run on a distributed cluster of machines.
