I think we were saying at the presentation on Wednesday that the :true and :false atoms are provided as affordances on top of the true and false keywords.
At the end of section 1.3 of the Elixir Introduction (http://elixir-lang.org/getting_started/1.html), the notes suggest that true and false are "implemented internally as atoms".
It seems that the opposite is true... that booleans at their must basic level are in fact atoms, and that the keywords are provided as affordances on top of them.
Can anyone corroborate this? Am I on track?

The Getting Started Guide has an example that shows this to be true at the end of section 1.3.
Elixir also provides true and false as booleans:
iex> truetrueiex> is_boolean falsetrueBooleans are represented internally as atoms:

I am going to the Apache Mesos talk instead. Have fun without me.

Your loss. ;)

Elixir might be a really good tool for using on Mesos
Thanks Jim for getting it together. Loved meeting everyone. Feel free to contact me if you are needing some help.
Thanks for you help and for getting the projector screen!!
Great time meeting people. Thanks to Taylor for getting me setup!
Great introductory presentation and overview from Jim. Thanks!
I was so looking forward to this! I've been doing Elixir exercises on exercism.io to get my feet wet. But I can't make it. I'll look forward to the next meeting.
It is opposite of HackAustin too, but people just have to make choices. There are so many meetups that you can't find empty days anymore!
I'm choosing Elixir!

Do you realize that this is opposite the Apache Mesos presentation?
Back to the future with Erlang. Thank God for no more Sed and Awk

Since you are changing the location to Mangias on Mesa, please make sure they are not having live music. We had one LOPSA meeting there and it was terrible!
Urgh... same time as "intro to personal cloud" and "what's exciting about Mesos"... there's too many things to learn :/

Willing to help getting elixir/dynamo running on peoples boxes. Mac or linux.

Location is good for me too! Looking forward to seeing what's up with Elixir!

I'm in North Austin so the location feels fairly central to me. ;)
The location seems fine and I'm looking forward to chatting and discussing.
The 7th puts the meeting at the same time as openhack. Not sure if I can make it.

Sorry about that. We can adjust meeting time/day if needed. I got so excited about Elixir, I forgot my daughter's birthday on July 31. Bad Jim, bad.

Just bring her along
It tough to find a day without a conflict. This meeting NOT being downtown is definitely a plus. Will there be a talk or some coding time, or are you planning a strictly social planning meeting?

The plan is to have an overview presentation on Elixir and to help people get it running on their machines - specifically Dynamo for those who are interested.

Alright - I'm back in!
The innevitable question, so I'll ask it... :)
Any chance of moving the meeting to a more central location? I'm perhaps biased in thinking that more "progressive" (read: early adopter) programmers are based closer to the core. Either way, I'll make it!

Is 'central' defined as Scott's home? :p
Ha! I'm still wearing my pajamas then :)
I'm also pretty happy with the location :)
Meeting location is great and the day/time is great. Looking forward to it!
