You can build Robots with Erlang!
The Encyclopedia Galactica defines a robot as a mechanical apparatus designed to do the work of a man. The marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation defines a robot as “Your Plastic Pal Who’s Fun to Be With.”
Ok, maybe not that kind of robots, but it Is true that robots often involve several concurrent tasks, including operating machinery, ensuring safety of people in the area, monitoring sensors. Erlang provides a very good way to manage that.
WE talk about what is and is not a robot along with what robots can and can’t do. Fred Wishes for a robot to plow his driveway when its 40bellow in Quebec

At Erlang Factory Jose and Dave pointed out that we in the Erlang community are loosing people by the fact that we have not kept up with the tools in other languages, like Clojure, Ruby and Elixir. So we brought on two professors who have both taught Erlang to see what they have experienced in their classes. Simon Thompson teaches at the University of Kent in Canterbery, England, and Yehuda Ben Shimol teaches at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Beer Sheva Israel.
This podcast was recorded live on stage at EUC 2014 so it has a somewhat different feel to it
