Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP
Implementing Robust, Fault-Tolerant Systems
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2014
Pages: 400

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Design and build complex, scalable commercial-grade systems with the Open Telecom Platform (OTP), the open source system developed by Ericsson and written in Erlang. With this hands-on book, you’ll learn how to apply OTP libraries and techniques to develop concurrent, fault-tolerant systems with no single point of failure.

Written by the authors of O'Reilly's Erlang Programming, including a member of OTP’s R1 release team, this guide takes you through the basics of OTP and Erlang Design Patterns, and demonstrates how the platform can be used in a wide range of industries. If you have Erlang experience, you’ll learn how to overcome key obstacles in OTP that have thwarted many other developers.

Comments about oreilly Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP:

This book is undoubtedly the successor of Erlang Programming from the same author.

Generic servers (gen_server), finite state machines (gen_fsm), event handlers, supervisors, applications, release handling, release upgrades, ... no aspect of OTP is forgotten.

Deep coverage and goes into technical details, I highly recommend you this book either you are an Erlang or Elixir developer.
