    About this course

    Why learn Erlang

    Erlang is a distributed parallel process oriented, functional programming language.

    In 2018, the popular site StackOverflow rated Erlang as the highest paying programming language in the US, and among the highest in the world.

    Many big players like Microsoft, IBM, Ericsson, WhatsApp etc use Erlang for their backend functionality.

    This course teaches you:

    • to install and setup Erlang on a PC and Mac

    • the language basics like

      • functions

      • data types

      • lists

      • etc

    • control structures

    • functions and higher order functions

    • concurrent processing

    This course opens up many opportunities to work in a niche market, where your skills will be highly values by employers. There is a huge shortage of Erlang skills, and you can claim the top spot.

    Erlang is also a fun language to learn, making it easy to communicate between computers across the internet. It's a great skill to have if you're looking to expand your programming tool belt.

    We will build examples at every step and learn by applying the knowledge. We will also build a distributed chat application to exemplify the knowledge we learn.

    This course explains step by step what the structures and functionality are for and how to apply them in a real world scenario.
