This will be the start of a regular meetup to learn Erlang by working through the "Etudes for Erlang": http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000000726. This meetup is geared towards people who wish to learn Erlang. No prior Erlang experience is necessary, although some familiarity with programming is recommended.
This will be a recurring meetup on the first Wednesday of the month, with a shorter Etudes session happening before the more general Erlang meetup on the third Wednesday of the month. Hope to see you there!
The User Group is a get together of Erlang and Elixir Enthusiasts who are interested in sharing their knowledge and meeting people who share similar interests. The group is open to Architects, Programmers, Project Managers, Software and Platform Innovators, and existing users as well as Erlang and Elixir newbies and anyone interested in languages running on the Erlang Virtual Machine. We arrange and promote regular events including free lectures, study sessions and workshops, followed by the customary Erlounge (i.e. beer, food and socializing).
