Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! is now a real book!
In my humble opinion if you want to learn or improve your Erlang, writing a lot of code is a good idea but is really not enough: you have to learn from other people’s work, you have to read more from blogs and books.
That’s the reason why in one of my oldest posts I recommended you to take a look at 7 Erlang related websites among which you will find the good old http://learnyousomeerlang.com/. I firmly believe that most of Erlangers out there learnt a lot from Fred Heber‘s work; the amount of information he provides is just impressive and his way to teach Erlang by small (well, not that small) examples is the best one I have seen so far online.
If you liked and still like Fred’s online book as I did, you should probably be aware of the fact that this brilliant piece of Erlang knowledge is going to be published by No Starch Press. Yes, Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! is going to be a real book! Isn’t this an amazing news?
Do you want to purchase the book (which is now in pre-order)? In that case you have to go to http://nostarch.com/erlang and the book will be yours in few clicks.
Oh, I almost forgot two very important things:
- if you buy the book you will also have the free ebook in several formats (pdf, mobi, etc)
- if during the purchase procedure you use the coupon code PREORDER you will get 30% off
I really can’t wait for my copy to arrive!
