Erlang logging for the 21st OTP

In 2011, Andrew released lager and in 2012 he gave a talk at Erlang Factory SF explaining why he wrote it and comparing it to all the alternatives available at the time. A lot has changed since; most of the old competitors to lager have fallen out of usage, Elixir now exists and has its own logger and now, with OTP 21, Erlang finally has a new logger in the standard library. This talk will revisit the Erlang logging scene and compare all the modern alternatives.


Help Erlang users decide on which logging framework to use and why.


People who want to log from their Erlang/Elixir application but are confused by all the choices.
