A whirlwind tour of the Erlang language. This session will be based loosely on Chapter 2 from Erlang and OTP in Action. This tour will serve to teach Erlang to any very astute developers that don’t know it yet and be a nice refresher for those that already know it to some degree. Even advanced users should be able to take some new information on the Erlang language itself out of this session.
In order to get the most out of the bootcamp, you should have a good grasp of another programming language. This will be a hands on tutorial. You will need a laptop with Erlang installed and your favorite editor. Instructions are here.
