Great book on Erlang's OTP - this book provides good description of OTP, including many examples, that allows to better understand it. But this book doesn't teach to Erlang itself, although there is introduction-level chapter, it's better to read this book together with one of existing Erlang books - either Erlang Programming or Programming Erlang: Software for a Concurrent World ...more

Out of the three in print Erlang books this was my favorite. I first learned OTP the hard way, by reading the man pages over and over again and trying things out. While this works you end up in many dead ends. This book laid out just about everything you want to know about developing programs in Erlang the proper OTP way.

Наверное, самая хорошая книга по Эрлангу на данный момент. Рассматриваются практически все вопросы создания реального приложения на Erlang/OTP. Единственное, что даже не упомянут rebar, который заметно помогает, упрощает инфраструктурные вопросы для построения OTP-приложений. Хотя это логично, если вспомнить, что авторы поддерживают альтернативные инструменты для схожих целей (sinan etc.), но они тоже вроде даже не упоминаются.

This one is a solid reference book for OTP in Erlang. This is a nicely written with practical examples everywhere that conveys you the numerous utilities of Erlang and OTP for building fault-tolerant systems. Too bad that the Indian education system doesn't try to teach many languages other than C, Java in curriculum. ...more
Good and informative with a number of good insights into designing Erlang programs. Will likely be very handy in the future when dealing with Erlang and OTP and will likely get updated to a 5-star review when that time comes.

Fantastic book, the one that hooked my up to functional programming and actor based systems.

I think this book would be indispensible if I used Erlang on a daily basis.

Another fine addition to the Erlang library. And the first Erlang book that really focuses on the OTP application framework.
