Learn You Some Erlang for great good Fred!
Erlang Solutions


Fred Hebert is an Erlang enthusiast based in the unexplored Northern parts of Quebec (relatively speaking). He is so enthusiastic, in fact, that he started writing Learn You Some Erlang for great good! a free online book designed to teach Erlang, functional programming and basic computer science concepts.

He started his career working with backend services for medium to large scale web sites, but php just did not do it. In 2010 Erlang Solutions came to the rescue! He is now working with course development and e-learning while remaining true to web applications, this time, written in Erlang.
