Research + Industry = Inspiration

Erlang has been inspiring research and industry from its first days – and is itself a result of successful application of research and industrial practices. In this talk we will explore what makes Erlang an exciting topic for collaboration between industry and academia, Erlang’s attractiveness to researchers and talk about transformation of research ideas into companies. We’ll also discuss ways of getting involved in research.
