Are you a Java developer? Have you tried learning Erlang and walked away disappointed and confused because you just couldn't figure it out? Do you feel like Erlang could be a good tool in your toolbox if only you could get past the initial learning curve?
If you answered yes to these questions then join me at ErlangDC where I'll try to bridge the gap by building on your already established Java knowledge. I'll cherry pick fundamental concepts in the Java ecosystem, from build tools to source code, and relate them to their counterparts in Erlang. At the end of my talk you should have a better idea of where to start the next time you decide to build something in Erlang.
This talk is not about syntax, although it will be covered peripherally. This talk is not an iteration of all Erlang's core language features that you can already find in the many excellent Erlang books out there. This talk is about helping a Java developer think and navigate the Erlang ecosystem.
