Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
The Erlang ecosystem evolved from a language written to run on a proprietary virtual machine to a family of languages interacting with each other on multiple VMs, running on everything from embedded devices to supercomputers. In this 20 year transition, the Erlang ecosystem has been ahead of its time, evolving, adapting, and sometimes being held back by technology in catch up mode. Whilst the BEAM is still ahead of its time, what does the future hold? Will it be able to adapt and react to change, managing the programming models and paradigms of the future? And how will this change happen?
