Introduction to Erlang post series

This entry is part 1 of 16 in the series Introduction to Erlang

While I was writing my first actual (and extremely delayed :-S) article for the Parallelizing simple algorithms series, I realized that since Erlang is not a popular programming language it would be nice to start an Introduction to Erlang post series. I consider Erlang as a must-know language for an engineer that works with distributed systems and parallel programming. Believe me, in several cases, Erlang is a problem solver!

I will try to keep the posts short and example based. An approximation of the posts that I intend to write is:

  1. Basics: how to get a working Erlang environemt
  2. Basic Types: integers, floats, …
  3. Modules and Compiling: how to write and compile a module
  4. Functions: how to delcare functions
  5. Library Functions & BIFs
  6. Lists: list manipulation
  7. Processes: how to create new processes
  8. Message Passing: how to send messages between processes
  9. Debugging: how to debug Erlang programms
  10. Records: how to use records

I will keep this list updated in case that I come up with new ideas!

I hope I will convince you that Erlang worths every software engineer’s attention..
