Finite State Machines are overlooked at best, ignored at worst, and virtually always dismissed. This is tragic since FSMs are not just about Door Locks (the most commonly used example). On the contrary, these FSMs are invaluable in clearly defining communication protocols – ranging from low-level web-services through complex telephony application to reliable interactions between loosely-coupled systems. Properly using them can significantly enhance the stability and reliability of your systems.

Join me as I take you through a crash-course in FSMs, using erlang’s gen_fsm behavior as the background, and hopefully leaving you with a better appreciation of both FSM and erlang in the process.
