Book Description

Erlang is an important programming language especially in light of its functional paradigm, excellent handling of concurrency, ability to deal with distributed and multi-core platforms, reliability and fault-tolerance. It is also a difficult language with an unconventional (Prolog-like) syntax, lack of object orientation, and importantly the nonexistence of variables.

In this book, you will find descriptions of programs that you can compose (write) in Erlang. The programs will usually be short, and each one has been designed to provide practice material for a particular Erlang programming concept. These programs have not been designed to be of considerable difficulty, though they may ask you to stretch a bit beyond the immediate material and examples that you find in the book Introducing Erlang.

  • Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! (Fred Hebert)

    This book 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. You'll tackle the real meat-and-potatoes of the language.

  • Concurrent Programming in Erlang, 2nd Edition (Joe Armstrong)

    This book employs a tutorial approach to guide the reader through the programming of real-time and distributed fault-tolerant systems. Written by experts in the field, this practically-oriented bok shows how the use of Erlang results in modular systems which are easy to specify, design and test.

  • Erlang Programming (Wikibooks)

    This book shows you how to write simple Erlang programs by teaching you one skill at a time. You'll learn about pattern matching, recursion, message passing, process-oriented programming, and establishing pathways for data rather than telling it where to go.

  • Stuff Goes Bad: Erlang in Anger (Fred Hebert)

    This free book intends to be a little guide about how to be the Erlang medic in a time of war. It is first and foremost a collection of tips and tricks to help understand where failures come from, and a dictionary of different code snippets and practices that helped developers debug production systems that were built in Erlang.

  • Call Center Mathematics: Understanding and Improving using Erlang

    This book gives an overview of the role and potential of mathematical optimization in call centers. It deals extensively with all aspects of workforce management, but also with topics such as call routing and the scheduling of multiple channels.
