From the post:
Online bookie Bet365 has released code into the GitHub open-source library to encourage enterprise developers to use the Erlang functional programming language.
The company has used Erlang since 2012 to overcome the challenges of using higher performance hardware to support ever-increasing volumes of web traffic.
“Erlang is a precision tool for developing distributed systems that demand scale, concurrency and resilience. It has been a superb technology choice in a business such as ours that deals in high traffic volumes,” said Chandru Mullaparthi, head of software architecture at Bet365.
I checked, the SOAP library is out and the ODBC library is forthcoming.
Cliff’s post ends with this cryptic sentence:
These releases represent the first phase of a support programme that will aim to address each of the major issues surrounding the uptake of Erlang.
That sounds promising!
