About the name

Our name is lovingly stolen from the translation of the famous children’s book “Where Wild Things are’  (1963) by Maurice Sendak. In the Dutch and French translation the Wild Things were called Maximonsters and the title became Max and the Maximonsters. 
The book is a great piece of art expressing the fantasy of a little boy who goes on an incredible adventure without leaving his home. In his fantasy he encounters the fierce maximonsters (who actually look kind of friendly). Luckily he returns safely when his mother calls him for dinner. As we think great internet projects are made by young minds, we thought the name suited us well. Or we were just being silly.
Luckily all the books are still in print after all these years. Are you a fan too? You might like this!





Maximonster & Erlang

So you need the absolute top in Erlang development? Looking for a full service team or help with recruiting  new employees or freelance contractors? Please give us a call!

Why Erlang?

We love the sentence  “for massively scalable soft real-time systems with requirements on high availability.”
Erlang is the open source programming language with built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance.
So that means: cheap, easily deployable and super super fast.
Though Erlang was originally focused on telecom applications, it is being used by internet developers all over the world (e.g What's App and Facebook) who need the same type of speed and reliability.

Development and staffing

We think Erlang is good for both back-end systems and systems with a lot of front-end components.   Though of course Erlang is the perfect system for high performance, high availability back-end systems and integrations, it is now the perfect system for building beautiful & usable web based systems boasting feature rich interfaces too.

Maximonster can take projects on or provide staffing for ambitious clients who need Erlang developers. 

Zotonic – open source web framework

As Erlang is a low level framework, it needs a framework to be able to develop fast and feature rich applications, at a competitive rate. Zotonic  offers content management but also a framework for scalable applications.

Zotonic is being adopted by developers all over the world. Maximonster is one of the main sponsors of the development.
