This book will show you how to leverage the yaws web server to write web applications using the Erlang language. The author Zachary Kessin will show how to build RESTful web services on top of yaws and how to use WebSockets with it. Upon reading this book you should be able to start working on your own solutions since the book touch pretty much all major aspects of web development. You won’t need to be an Erlang expert to follow along with the book, just having an understanding of the syntax and the basics behind Erlang will be enough. Full Review  >
