University of Kent via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.


Concurrent functional programming is increasingly important in providing global-scale applications on the internet.

We combine the theory of concurrent programming with the practice of how that works in Erlang. You’ll get the opportunity to reinforce what you learn through practical exercises and more substantial, optional practical projects.

Functional programming has been a strength the University of Kent for the last 30 years. Throughout the course, you’ll learn with Simon Thompson – co-author of one of the standard introductions to Erlang, O’Reilly Media’s Erlang Programming.

This course is designed for anyone with prior experience of functional programming and the Erlang language, who wants to learn more about concurrent programming.

You can gain this experience on the University of Kent’s other Erlang course, Functional Programming with Erlang.

This course is ideal if you are a developer or computing professional seeking to understand and gain experience with this technology; a computer science undergraduate studying functional programming as part of your degree; or a self-taught programmer looking to take your knowledge to the next level.
