Stuff Goes Bad: Erlang in Anger

This book intends to be a little guide about how to be the Erlang medic in a time of war. It is first and foremost a collection of tips and tricks to help understand where failures come from, and a dictionary of different code snippets and practices that helped developers debug production systems that were built in Erlang.

From the author of Learn You Some Erlang For Great Good!, which I’m going back over again to refamiliarise myself with the language after… oh… quite a long time.

Hi, NewsGator users (all two of you)!

The feed for this site seems to have been broken in NewsGator as they do some canonicalisation of URLs that doesn’t play well with the code for this site.

I’ve added a quick fix to the code to allow it to work again.

I’m not sure if the problem is on NewsGator’s end or mine, but I’ll investigate the relevant RFCs to see if I’m not canonicalising URLs properly on my end.
