Erlang - Some more musing
I am able to see lot of traction and attraction towards Erlang esp. individual contributors active with Erlang. It is good sign. Language will not be success without either community support or big marketing muscle. It is clearly the web giants and startups which anticipate astronomical spike in user growth is focusing on Erlang. It is a scale which is unimaginable and reliability which is dream of architects started using Erlang. To cater such a scale an early decision is very important. Facebook chat application with 10 billion messages and 1200 per seconds and 4+ million active channels is astronomical.
