ErlyWeb vs. Ruby on Rails EC2 Performance Showdown. ErlyWeb’s peak response rate beats Rails by 47x, albeit with a hugely simplified benchmark. More interesting than the results is the idea of using EC2 for benchmarking on identical simulated hardware. # 10th December 2007, 3:27 pm

CouchDB Roundup. The CouchDB project is interested in contributions from people who can write a large file driver for Erlang, help figure out the CouchDB security model and build scripts to help benchmark performance, scalability and reliability. # 6th December 2007, 3:48 pm

CouchDB: Thinking beyond the RDBMS. CouchDB is a fascinating project—an Erlang powered non-relational database with a JSON API that lets you define “views” (really computed tables) based on JavaScript functions that execute using map/reduce. Damien Katz, the main developer currently works for MySQL and used to work on Lotus Notes. # 3rd September 2007, 9:48 am

JSON and JSON-RPC for Erlang. Nice example of using lists:reverse and an accumulator to efficiently build a string in reverse order. # 25th March 2007, 4:29 pm

Programming Erlang. A book on Erlang from the creator of the language himself, out in July but available to buy now as a beta PDF. # 3rd March 2007, 8:49 am
