What could happen if we mix Erlang, a language that is ideal for high concurrency and parallelism, with PHP, the most popular web development Language? In this talk I will present a C extension that let us use PHP as an Erlang C node to communicate directly with Erlang to do such things as:
* Query Mnesia
* Administer RabbitMQ
* Use Erlang as the Session storage backend for PHP.
* Run map/reduce jobs in Erlang and get the results back in PHP
With this PHP extension we aim to lower the entry barrier to Erlang so more users from the web development niche can start to benefit from the language.
