For our second meetup we'll be looking into how to build an actual server with Erlang.
Stuff we'll cover:
- Basic syntax
- Basic functional programming with Erlang
- Core OTP concepts/patterns (gen_server, applications, ...)
- How to use the rebar Erlang build tool
- Expose a simple service using a web API
- How to do unit testing
The idea is to pick a simple service/API (like a string reversal algorithm) and to show what is needed to implement it in Erlang.
We'll walk through all the required steps and code to build and test it.
