A MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) Functional Programming in Erlang will be available from 4 May 2020 on the FutureLearn platform.

The course is free and designed for anyone with prior programming experience, whether self-taught or professional. This is followed in late June by a second MOOC on Concurrent Programming in Erlang.

We combine the theory of functional programming and the practice of how that works in Erlang. The course will also help you if you are interested in Elixir, based on the same virtual machine as Erlang, and will help you get going with any functional language.

You’ll learn with Simon Thompson – co-author of one of the standard introductions to Erlang, O’Reilly Media’s Erlang Programming. Simon is joined by Francesco Cesarini, of Erlang Solutions, and Joe Armstrong, one of the inventors of Erlang.

This University of Kent designed course will teach theory and practice, through practical exercises and suggested projects and includes:

	• Getting started programming in Erlang
	• Programs and functions in Erlang
	• Data structures using lists
	• Tools for Erlang programming
	• Functions as data, and higher-order functions
	• Case studies

The MOOC is supported by the Erlang Ecosystem Foundation and Erlang Solutions Ltd, as well as the University of Kent.

We look forward to you joining!
