XMPP thought it to me

2006–2007
In March 2005, I happened to pick up DDJ (which I didn't read regularly) and saw Sutter's article: http://www.gotw.ca/publications/concurrency-ddj.htm This got me thinking about concurrency, and that lead me to Erlang. I don't think Erlang is a generally great answer to the problem, but it's very interesting. (My money is on Clojure in general.)

This is my all-time favorite language. Having lightweight processes built into the language. How can you beat that? I just wish I had more reason to use it.

Spent a summer learning Erlang and went to a course and conference. Love the ideas but get annoyed w/syntax. What was Uncle Joe thinking..? (Prolog apparently)

Read the book over Christmas holiday, Hello Worlded a bit. Getting into CouchDB lately, so I might be back.

Been using at work for distributed high-load fault tolerant stuff. Built some personal projects with it as well. Probably my favorite language to do difficult things in. Except for text processing, where it is ok but Python is way easier.
2008–
Read Joe's book and did some helloword programming. I love how easy it is to implement parallel and distributed programs. Looking forward to apply on a real world project.

Got into Erlang after my friend sent me an article about Ericsson building super reliable applications in it. Read everything I could find on it. Wrote couple small applications. Did have a chance to use it on real life project yet.
2008
Attempted to learn it but stopped as I wasn't using it for anything. I hope learning Haskell would revive my desire to learn Erlang.

Barely touched it... Listing to remember when I first encountered it.
2008–
I started looking into Functional programming (on Ken's recommendation) and Erlang was the first one I picked.

I spent a substantial time learning Erlang over Winter break a few years back. I read Programming Erlang cover to cover, wrote a bunch of small programs, and fully intended on writing robust servers with OTP. Those servers never happened, but I still love Erlang.
2008–
I became increasingly curious about Erlang after Joe Armstrong's new book came out. Concurrent programming has never been this fun! Also this is my first experience with a true functional language (if you ignore the little bit of Common Lisp that I picked up during the Artificial Intelligence class).

Dabbling in this. It's so fascinating.
2009–
Starting to play with Erlang. The concepts are improving my other programming efforts. I'm looking forward to using it for a real project sometime this year, 2010.
2009–
Picked it up for a gigantic project (a RO server reverse-engineering/reimplementation). Works wonderfully. Nothing beats it in this domain.

Did some spidering but the http client wasn't the greatest. Always amazed at SMP BEAM being able to spin up 100's of K's of processes.

Haven't yet got to the Erlang chapter in Seven Languages in Seven Weeks (http://bit.ly/cmNUWU), but I'm looking forward to it.

Like prolog and python had a beautiful baby.
