OTP Study Group

Per Eric, "At the security desk, just say you're here for the Erlang Meetup"  in conference room B

At the end of the August meeting we discussed doing a series of meetings covering the book 'OTP in Action'. I volunteered for this meeting, but am hoping to rotate speaker-ship as we progress. This first meeting will cover basic introduction to OTP which will be chapter 1 plus some practical information and (if you promise to be gentle) some simple code review. It will be boring for the Erlang power users, but come and help if you can.

    One of the things discussed was graph processing in Erlang, and how pregerl didn't meet needs. I found the Phoebus project, "a distributed framework for large scale graph processing", and though I'd share:

    A little too far for me this time. :/

    I agree that rotating the duties, like in a grad school class, would involve everyone more deeply.

    For the meeting, I'm going to summarize all of chapter 1, then section 2.1, section 3.1 and section 10.1. Other good background material is http://www.erlang.org/doc/design_principles/des_princ.html

    Still working but it looks like just 9 slides and then some coding/review, followed by discussion and planning future meetings.

    It maybe short notice and I'll have to figure out the details but where I work, Gannett, has plenty of space. The downside is we're in Tysons.

      I can do Tysons. Doesn't look like my office will be open very soon.

    • Eric M.

      Ok, I'll get the details about setting up the meetup for Tuesday.

    I'll set up a github account for the group and send up some items I plan on using in the meeting soon. Should have time, since we're "shutdown". Hopefully we'll be open by next week, but nobody knows. Unless we find another venue, the 8th is conditional on the shutdown being lifted

    By the way, I have the MEAP unedited draft version of the book. Will that be fine for the reviews, or do I need to purchase a copy?

    October 1, 2013

    • Colin M.

      I'd expect it to be close enough to the final book. If needs be, there might be someone near you that you could share a copy with.

      October 1, 2013

    • Colin M.

      It looks like the Arlington central library has a copy. :)

  • Bill B.

    Ah, shame about the effect of the shutdown. Well, I can definitely be there tomorrow, and hopefully can if it is rescheduled.

    October 1, 2013

  • Colin M.

    I guess we'll know first thing Wednesday morning. I'll send out a notice then.

    October 1, 2013

  • Eric M.

    So I take it this is on hold?

    It has just occurred to me that if there is a Government shutdown, we can't get in to the building for the meeting. We'll may have to re-schedule.
