Thanks Jesper for your comments.
I was brought up on lisp and have spent a couple of decades on Haskell and
such languages.  So the functional aspect of Erlang is not (likely to be)
an issue for me.

Concurrency however is new!

So any directions of exercises that I could try to get into 'the Erlang
groove' would be helpful.
