If your programming experience is with old-school languages like C or object oriented languages like Java, the functional style of Erlang can seem baffling at first, especially as you move from looping to recursion and learn to pass messages between processes. Introducing Erlang does a great job of showing you, step by step, how to use Erlang to approach programming. The examples can be a bit repetitious, but by looking at the differences between similar code samples will be your best place to understand how the language works. If you're new to functional programming, this is the place to start. If you have worked with a Lisp, with Haskell or with another functional paradigm, you might prefer Learn you some Erlang for a great good. Experienced programmers will want to check out the new edition of Programming Erlang by Joe Armstrong, who designed the language.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
