My employer has a successful suite of products that grew out of a monolithic app.
When the monolith was split into different products and services one particular service had requirements that were naturally met by Erlang: distributed execution, fault tolerance, and horizontal scalability.
I've been working on an implementation of this service that meets the above requirements while retaining the existing interface and features.
The presentation is a summary of my ongoing work on this solution, the key challenges I faced, their solutions, and the future road map for the project.
- Orchestration in Java
- Data scraping in Perl and Python
- Data analyzis in R
Trying to replace the Java-based orchestration by Erlang.
