Book Description

Erlang is the language of choice for programmers who want to write robust, concurrent applications, but its strange syntax and functional design can intimidate the uninitiated.

Erlang maestro Fred Hebert starts slow and eases you into the basics: You'll learn about Erlang's unorthodox syntax, its data structures, its type system (or lack thereof!), and basic functional programming techniques. Once you've wrapped your head around the simple stuff, you'll tackle the real meat-and-potatoes of the language: concurrency, distributed computing, hot code loading, and all the other dark magic that makes Erlang such a hot topic among today's savvy developers.

As you dive into Erlang’s functional fantasy world, you'll learn about:

  • Testing your applications with EUnit and Common Test
  • Building and releasing your applications with the OTP framework
  • Passing messages, raising errors, and starting/stopping processes over many nodes
  • Storing and retrieving data using Mnesia and ETS
  • Network programming with TCP, UDP, and the inet module
  • The simple joys and potential pitfalls of writing distributed, concurrent applications
About the Authors
  • Fred Hebert (Frederic Trottier-Hebert) is a self-taught programmer who taught Erlang. He spent time working on a real-time bidding platform and was named Erlang User of the Year 2012, and has since joined the routing team at Heroku, building large scale production systems with Erlang. His online tutorial, Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good!, is widely regarded as the best way to learn Erlang.
