Workshop: Building Applications In Erlang

Despite the simplicity of the language, programmers can use Erlang to build remarkably sophisticated, complex applications! But how?

This hands on workshop will walk you through the process of creating a typical Erlang application. It's not as hard as it may seem. We'll start with trivial functionality and incrementally evolve the code over three hours -- at each step adding features and demonstrating Erlang programming techniques.

If you're new to Erlang or want to learn more about building applications with the language, this workshop will get you up to speed in just a few hours. From there, you'll be able to tackle basic projects on your own -- and count Erlang among the tools in your programmer's toolbox!
