Paris.ex is the parisian group for people interested in learning about the Elixir Programming Language. Elixir was written by José Valim, a well known and respected member of the Ruby community. And it may very well be "the next big thing". Elixir is a functional meta-programming aware language built on top of the Erlang VM. It is a dynamic language with flexible syntax with macros support that leverages Erlang's abilities to build concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant applications with hot code upgrades. Elixir also provides first-class support for pattern matching, polymorphism via protocols (similar to Clojure's), aliases and associative data structures (usually known as dicts or hashes in other programming languages). Finally, Elixir and Erlang share the same bytecode and data types. This means you can invoke Erlang code from Elixir (and vice-versa) without any conversion or performance hit. This allows a developer to mix the expressiveness of Elixir with the robustness and performance of Erlang.

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.
