Software development is more of craftsmanship than of engineering. A good craftsman carries more tools around than just a hammer. And it's relatively inefficient to use a hammer where you need a saw. So when you take the Java ecosystem for hammer, there is still a lot of situations where a saw called Erlang would be a much better fit. In this talk you will learn these situations from concrete examples.

Talk objectives: To explain to the Java people in which cases they should prefer Erlang over Java as platform, the lingual advantages of Erlang, but also cases where they should stay with Java.

Target audience: Java professionals.
