[erlang-questions] Erlounge in Provo, Utah May 8th
Tue May 1 17:10:32 CEST 2007
The UtahValley.rb and BYU-RUG are trying something new. In place of
our regular May 8th meeting, we're going to be hosting an 'erlounge'
(an Erlang-centered meeting) Hopefully this will be the first of many
monthly erlounges. (No, this doesn't mean we're giving up Ruby --
plan on seeing our regular Ruby meetings for a long time to come.)
We'll meet at 7 PM in the large conference room at the Open Source
Technology Center in Building A on the Novell Campus in Provo. During
the meeting, we'll look at the first 6 chapters of 'Programming Erlang'
by Joe Armstrong.
Erlang is a highly concurrent, functional language. It was initially
developed over 10 years ago for programming cell phone switches.
Today, it is used for a variety of applications where stability,
performance, and concurrency are essential.
In his forward to 'Programming Erlang' Joe Armstrong writes "I had fun
writing this book. I hope you have fun reading it. Now go read the
book, write some code, and have fun." Let's take his advice and have
some fun reading and hacking erlang together.
