The Bay Area Clojure User Group Early/SF Monthly Meetup

José Valim will be presenting his creation Elixir: a functional language built on top of the Erlang VM.

http://elixir-lang.org

Elixir is a programming language for the Erlang VM. Elixir provides a first class macro mechanism, supports polymorphism via protocols (similar to Clojure's) and many other features while keeping the functional aspects of Erlang used to build distributed, fault-tolerant applications.

José Valim (@josevalim) is a Rails Core Team Member and author of Crafting Rails Applications. He graduated in Engineering in São Paulo University, Brazil and has a Master of Science by Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He is also the lead-developer of Plataformatec, a consultancy firm based in Brazil, an active member of the Open Source community and is frequently traveling and speaking at conferences.

    Without PA, I found the talks entirely inaudible. :(

    Clojure has scads of handy functions. How many of these could be brought to the Erlang VM via Elixir and/or a Clojure variant (eg, "Clojerl")?

    All, There is currently no talk or topic planned for this meetup. Anyone wants to suggest one, either propose a talk or a topic? Otherwise we can just have an open session.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
