Erlang Ecosystem Foundation

The Erlang Ecosystem Foundation is a new non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the state of the art for Erlang, Elixir, LFE, and other technologies based on the BEAM. Our goal is to increase the adoption of this sophisticated platform among forward-thinking organizations. With member-supported Working Groups actively contributing to libraries, tools, and documentation used regularly by individuals and companies relying on the stability and versatility of the ecosystem, we actively invest in critical pieces of technical infrastructure to support our users in their efforts to build the next generation of advanced, reliable, realtime applications.


The Erlang Software Foundation’s goal is to grow and support a diverse community around the Erlang and Elixir Ecosystem, encouraging the continued development of technologies and open source projects based on/around its runtime and languages


In order to meet the needs of the ecosystem, the EEF sponsors Working Groups to solve specific challenges faced by users of BEAM technology.  Areas of particular interest include documentation, interoperability, and performance.
Over the coming months, the EEF will announce the first round of Working Groups and issue calls to action to the community. We hope that these Working Groups will be made up of people from all over the world and we expect these Working Groups will drive the languages, libraries, and communities of the Erlang Ecosystem forward.


Want to help grow the Erlang Ecosystem?  The Foundation is looking for passionate members of the community to help us.  We’re actively seeking individuals looking to join a Working Group as well as companies interested in sponsoring the Foundation’s work. Here are our Bylaws.
