[erlang-questions] Book: Hardcore Erlang

Alexander Lamb <>
Fri Nov 9 14:09:18 CET 2007


Some items:

- how to bridge to other systems (through a message bus maybe, e.g.  
RabbitMQ) to "push data out"
- how to handle state for a connected user and bridge to a user  
interface (Web or other)
- how to handle updates of data formats (records) without breaking all  
the chain

Looking forward to read it (now I finished Joe's book:-). When can we  
expect to see it on the shelves?
