Hi Tristan,

I much look forward to reading your book. 

I’ve had questions recently about how to release Erlang apps into the wild. There seems to be little information on the web or in the literature that explores security issues. I’ve also recently explored Linux containers and wondered about synergies with Erlang.

So, thanks for this work.

Best wishes,

And there were already a number of important and interesting topics covered, see Hard Things to Get Right (https://adoptingerlang.org/docs/development/hard_to_get_right/) in particular.

It is an ongoing effort to gather all the resources that will help you use Erlang in a business. The booksite is divided in three sections focusing particularly on Erlang/OTP’s higher level concepts in the current open source ecosystem, how to use it in production (while setting up a pipeline for continuous development and delivery), and how to build a team when you’re starting from scratch.
