We know that OTP is an important part of the elixir ecosystem. But why is it important and how does it work? How do we leverage OTP appropriately to build highly concurrent systems at scale. We will walk through the why and the how by building a crypto-currency exchange, and then adding load to the exchange to see OTP at work.
This talk will also provide context about crypto-currency and how the protocol is implemented - so that the audience has appropriate context for understanding building an exchange.
