Prototyping

Erlang Solutions Ltd. can help you set up your strategy and code your prototypes and demos developed in Erlang/OTP. Erlang/OTP is ideal for iterative code development, and hence prototypes. When contending with other programming tools and languages, it has often been the ability to demonstrate a working prototype quickly that has led to the choice of Erlang.

Mike Williams, one of the inventors of Erlang once said "Make mistakes on a small scale, not in a production project. It is not good enough to have ideas, you must be able to implement them and know that they work." A prototype will show design flaws at an early stage of the development project. It will give a feeling for whether your ideas can be implemented, provide early benchmarks, and will act as a stepping stone in the introduction of a new technology in your company. Depending on the size, it takes about 80 hours and upwards to get a prototype running. Our prototype package includes:

  • Training a small group in advanced Erlang features.
  • Training in OTP behaviours.
  • Designing the prototype architecture.
  • Help in coding and testing.
  • Profiling.
  • Analysis of the system architecture.
  • Setting up the strategy for the large scale project.
