[erlang-questions] Ways to get started
Mon Jul 11 19:41:09 CEST 2011
The biggest problem that I am running into is that my Unix sys admin experience 10+ years ago doesn't help much. Using Git, Rebar, and even make is a steep hill for me to travel. I've been through numerous tutorials and documentation and there is this massive body of knowledge that I just don't have, or these tutorials just assume you know .
I get Erlang. That's the easy part. It's just the underlying development structure and environment that gets in my way.
Is there a real 101 that can give me a leg up? Really basic questions like:
How do I get Erlang from github? Where do I put it once I get it? How does rebar fit into this picture? What does a development cycle look like using these tools?
Really Really basic stuff.

In addition to the books and the online resources mentioned...
I find it helps to pick a project that you'd be comfortable solving in
another language, then tackle it in Erlang. Solve mini problems as you
go. Ask questions here.
I find http://erldocs.com/ helpful as a reference.
P.S. Come to think of it, I don't know if
http://www.erlang.org/doc.html was mentioned. None of the books are a
substitute for that.
