Great Interview by Carlo Pires

I think Erlang is a natural way to programmers bored with OOP and its infinite APIs

Erlang is brilliant by Hao Zhang

Thank Joe Armstrong for bringing Erlang to us.

As long as you start to use Erlang and get used to its syntax, you would absolutely love it. It is simple but powerful.

I like Joe Armstrong's speech in the interview. He is very nice and funny.
