[erlang-questions] Vancouver Erlang Meetup in May

Yurii Rashkovskii yrashk@REDACTED
Thu Apr 21 01:37:38 CEST 2011


250 Howe Street - Suite 1210 Vancouver, BC

How to find us: This meetup will be at the iQmetrix HQ. Please be
punctual, as we will need to shuttle people upstairs to the space

As a warmup, Yurii will give a brief overview of interesting talks
that were given at the Erlang Factory SF 2011.

Talk #1: Agner

Libraries distribution mechanisms are key to the creation of a
thriving ecosystem for any programming language. Agner is a new
lightweight package index/manager partially inspired by Homebrew and
Clojars that is designed to bring simplicity and elegance to the way
dependencies are managed.

Talk #2: Beam.js

An edited version of the talk that was given at the Factory.

With rising popularity of JavaScript as server-side programming
language, wouldn't it be interesting to use potential of both Erlang
and JavaScript? Beam.js is a modular JavaScript platform built on top
of V8 that connects two powerful languages — JavaScript and Erlang at
a very low level by embedding V8 into Erlang VM. With Beam.js
JavaScript lovers can piggy back on Erlang’s solid distributed
networking infrastructure as well as other powerful components. For
Erlang users, it can provide a powerful way to describe top level
business logic on top of their robust architectures.

There's another talk pending confirmation ("Erlang's Dos and Don'ts").

After that we can discuss other subjects of interest and move to a
pub. Planned run time for the event is 3-4hrs or so.

If you want to give a talk, please let the organizer know.
