[erlang-questions] "What's Elixir?" Webinar

Hi,

Elixir (http://elixir-lang.org) is a functional meta-programming aware
language built on top of the Erlang VM. It is a dynamic language with
flexible and homoiconic syntax that leverages Erlang's abilities to
build concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant applications with hot
code upgrades.

Some say Elixir is like CoffeeScript for Erlang. To extent, this is
true. But it is much more than that that — it combines the raw power
of Erlang VM with Lisp-like macros, more familiar kind of syntax, some
features from Clojure and a strong focus on usability... not to
mention its own evolving standard library (which is quite nice!)

I am going to run a webinar next month (Oct 13), explaining the basics
of the language and going through creating a test application in it.

Register at http://wexw12.eventbrite.com/ and see you next month!

Yurii.
