Learning Erlang

11 July 2016

It’s time again to dip my toes into a new programming language. This time I chose Erlang. Why, I don’t know. But if you want to give it a try, here’s what I did to get started:

  • Run erlang in a docker container for quick setup: docker run --rm -it erlang - now you have an erlang shell open and you can start typing
  • Go read http://learnyousomeerlang.com/content

I’m still very early into the language, but I already find similar patterns to Clojure (which I’m also never used in production). So if you are familiar with some LISP, you’ll feel at home quickly.
