Programming Erlang Software for a Concurrent World - Book Review

I just finished reading Programming Erlang Software for a Concurrent World by Joe Armstrong...the creator of Erlang.

Nothing better that reading about a language, from the mouth of it's creator -:)


The book is huge with 519 pages...but every single page is worth reading...full of nice, funny and well explained examples, Mr. Armstrong makes you love Erlang -:)

Learn about Sequential Programming, Concurrent Programming, Distrubuted Programming, Sockets, DETS, OTP and Mnesia...among others...




This book is just great and I have learned so much...of course...while I'm still an Erlang newbie..I have enough knowledge to build small applications and have a lot of fun -;)

What I like about the book is that the approach is very light and casual...the example are not too easy or too hard, so using them to learn is just right...

Erlang is a language is that more than worth learning...and this book really does the job of hooking you up and getting ready for more...
