Erlang receives a lot of attention for its scalability features, but it's hard to get started in a new language by writing enterprise applications. As it turns out, Erlang is also an elegant and expressive language for small projects.
This talk will focus on how Erlang beginners can get started with simple command-line scripts and web applications. We'll talk about learning to "think functionally", and cover some basic idioms for recursion, pattern matching, and process interaction.
