I’ve recently been trying to learn erlang for some infrastructure projects that will benefit from being written in a language better suited to long running data processing and queueing than Ruby ever will be. Hopefully we’ll have these projects up and running behind the scenes for Litmus in the near future.
Invaluable resources to me so far have been
- Programming Erlang book by one of Erlang’s creators Joe Armstrong
- Erlang in Practice by Kevin Smith – Kevin works with me at Engine Yard and is a great teacher and all round nice guy. These screencasts really got me going on the road to understanding and learning erlang. I highly recommend the entire series.
