Are there differences between configuring an Arista switch versus a Cisco switch?

Are there any major differences one should be aware of? I've always used Cisco gear
and I'm on a site with a bunch of Arista. The article below makes it sounds there a lot
of commonality. Anything major?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

config
 instead of
config t
is small difference...
The same is with
show flash
or
dir flash
But I am not too familiar with Arista (configured just basic stuff in LAB)

You can check Arista configuration guide how to configure devices:

Arista does not use Cisco's IOS, but there are a lot of similarities.  Don't expect everything line of code to the exactly the same, but if you know Cisco's IOS, then Arista should be familiar.  I can't think of anything that would be a major difference, just be sure to test any changes you make on a test device before applying the change to a device that is in use.
