Reactive Showdown - Clojure vs Elixir vs. Scala


We have an exciting CincyFP planned for April.  The first contender in the octagon is Elixir & OTP.  Built on the Erlang VM, Elixir has deep roots in the granddaddy of all actor systems.   The next contender in is Scala + Akka.  Scala's actor system was model after Erlang's and brings many of the same features to the Java JVM.   Our final contender is Clojure with core.async.  Based off the Go language's async channels core.async provides a different construct than the standard actor model.

To test these three foes we will be breaking up into groups and implementing a simple Kata with each of the three technologies.  Come join the fun and learn about some very exciting technologies that are changing the way we think about large scale systems.


The meeting starts at 6:30 – Food is not usually provided, but feel free to bring you own.

    I had a great time and learned a lot.

    I just learned that functional programming is great for parallelizing programming like having different processors running different functions since it really doesn't matter about the order in which things happen. For procedures order matters but not for functions. Very cool, I am very new to this but am enjoying learning about it.

    What are some other advantages or applications of functional programming? I do realize that this is a type of programming paradigm and many languages use a combination of different paradigms. Right now I am learning about Scheme and hopefully tonight I will have time to read a little bit about Haskell too. You guys will have to help me when I show up since I want to learn more. I will be running late to the meetup.

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.
