One great way to pick up the idioms is to study code by the masters.
The OTP sources can be a great source of inspiration and examples of
the "right way".
Quite a bit (most) of the code in Jungerl also probably qualifies.
Yaws is high profile but probably not my favourite example of good
erlang style (too much use of get/put (yagpb) ).
mnesia is quite awesome, but rather heavyweight as a learning tool.
Suggestions for "Best Practice" open source erlang projects anyone?

A certian Lisp/Smalltalk hacker round these parts keeps telling me
that Smalltalk is something like Erlang in concept, but I never quite
listened hard enough to see why ;-)
