- You are interested in programming, so you are probably quite intelligent. - You are interested in Erlang, so you are a technology pioneer.
Based on these two things, I imagine that this is going to be a high caliber group. I'm excited to hear about what pulled you to Erlang, and I'm happy to offer any help that I can. I'm looking forward to hearing about pet projects, and I'm curious to see if there is anyone using Erlang professionally.
Finally, I'm holding out an unrealistic hope that Joe Armstrong himself will be strolling down Wilson and duck his head into the meeting. Dare to dream.
