Erlang Programming for Beginners

Video Description

In this introduction to Erlang, you’ll learn where the language came from, how it is different from other languages and get hands on experience. Erlang has a learning curve and is challenging. But you’ll be guided step by step in this course.

Erlang will stretch your knowledge of programming languages. It is unlike any language you’ve ever used except maybe Prolog (but who has ever used that?). We’ll start simple Erlang logic and build into small, compiled programs. This course is definitely hands on so you’ll get some great Erlang experience.

While you might not use Erlang in your current job, you’ll see how an esoteric language solves problems, which might spark some great ideas for you.
