Building Android applications on Erlang intelligence

How do we utilize the power of Erlang in Android applications? We'll review the virtual machine that runs Erlang modules and enables communication with Android. During the talk, a simple Erlang game logic will be presented focusing on the aspects of integration, into a non-standard Erlang runtime system. CoffeeBeam Android VM is taken as an example to show the restrictions and optimisation considerations when planning information flow between the phone application and the underlying BEAM logic.


Show the possibility of running Erlang logic on Android and demonstrate what architectural differences need to be considered when compared to a PC.


Developers who are familiar with the basic concepts of at least one language on the BEAM.
