Overview

Get to know Erlang, the increasingly popular programming language widely known for its role in concurrency. This in-depth video introduces you to the language with several examples that demonstrate Erlang in action. Learn the basics before diving into sequential programming, error handling, and support for concurrency. Then discover how Erlang enables you to quickly and easily write massively concurrent, highly available systems with a fraction of the effort of conventional programming languages. A case study of a client-server application shows you how to put these ideas into practice.

"Great series for Erlang beginners " - by Shyam Sankaran on 30-MAY-2014

Amazing series. Videos may look short but contain content far greater than its length. Not only does it provide an excellent introduction to erlang, it also gives a very good perspective on functional and process oriented programming. All in all, a must watch for all erlang beginners.
