Number of pages: 205
Erlang is a concurrent, functional programming language designed for programming large industrial real time systems. The language is untyped and has a pattern matching syntax. Functions are written as a set of recursion equations and the language has explicit concurrency and asynchronous message passing. Erlang provides explicit concurrency, has asynchronous message passing and is relatively free from side effects. Written in a tutorial style, the emphasis of this book is on learning through example and a number of well known problems in designing and programming concurrent fault-tolerant real-time systems are illustrated.

This text provides a more accessible introduction to distributed systems. The book brings together the ideas behind many of the more recent distributed systems - such as Amazon's Dynamo, Google's BigTable and MapReduce, Apache's Hadoop and so on.
