The Erlang Cookbook is designed to be a good starting point for learning
about the language, the OTP platform, and fault tolerant programming. This
book was started as a way for me to document what I learned about the
Erlang programming language, best practices gleaned from reading the
newsgroups and mailing lists, and tips and tricks from the helpful
developers and scientists using Erlang.
I modeled this book on the nearly-completed Scheme Cookbook that I was
fortunate enough to have been part of developing.
This book (and the Scheme Cookbook itself) could not have been created
without the excellent templating system Anton van Straaten developed for
the Scheme Cookbook.
