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.
The Erlang Cookbook's primary aim is to document short "recipes", using Erlang, that solve common programming problems. Parts of the Cookbook are specific to OTP Erlang but we aim to provide portable solutions when possible.
A secondary aim of the Cookbook is to further the adoption of Erlang. To that end we want to allow the possibility of a publishable book. The Copyright statement for this book is the most important consideration for publication. It is designed to allow free access to the content of the Cookbook while protecting the investmest a publisher may make in a compilation of material from the Cookbook. If you are going to contribute to the Cookbook you must agree to the CopyRight statement.
The Cookbook is a collaborative document and contributions are actively sought from all users of Erlang. See the AuthorGuide for instructions on how you can contribute.
