Chicago Erlang Users - February 2012

Chicago Erlang User Group is back in swing for 2012!

This month we'll be getting down some basics, but invaluable information for both new and seasoned Erlang developers.

Why Would Anyone Use Erlang?

by Garrett Smith

If you're curious about Erlang, this talk will give you the skinny on the real value of this language. You may be surprised that it's not just about building Web Scale chat servers that support 150 million concurrent users!

Let It Crash!

by Ben Mills

One of the core concepts of Erlang is letting processes crash rather than trying to handle the unexpected. In this talk we will explore the supervisor OTP behavior that lets us take full advantage of this language feature.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
