Fw: OTP vs. non-OTP

My humble opinion as a newbie in Erlang.

In favour of reusability, Design Patterns (like OTP behaviours) resolve
common tasks in the very start of the Design phase and before implementation
phase.

Should I invest time to learn OTP (patterns)?
Having one problem if the time to resolve it is less than
learning about patterns, I'd say no.
Now I do, because there are few patterns to learn and to resolve more than
one common repeatitive problem. In my case, telecom.

The question is how much difficult to learn will become Erlang when more
patterns will be added ?
Furthermore,  how can knowledge be transfered in the best way ? Is it always
a matter of time and Design Patterns the media ?
