Understanding the Erlang Scheduler
Thursday, February 6, 2014 - 4PM GMT

In Erlang there are different types of concurrent entities, processes, ports etc., each of which can have millions of instances, that have to be mapped out to make optimal usage of the hardware. The Erlang scheduler is a master piece in software engineering, but how does it actually go about scheduling the processes you create in your programs?

This webinar will provide an overview of all the different types and explain, how the Erlang VM decides what should run where and when.
In this webinar you'll learn about :

* Run queues
* The differences between processes, ports and timers
* How the next thing to execute is chosen and
* Load balancing
