Erlang Users of Arlington/DC Message Board › Spawnfest + Erlang featured in The Economist + Call for lightning talks
|A former member||
I just wanted to share two interesting Erlang links:
1) Erlang is featured in The Economist on an article about Parallel Programming: http://www.economist.com/node/18750706
2) There is a cool event called the Spawnfest, which is like a Rails Rumble for Erlang. Participants gets to write an application in Erlang in two days and at the end the best application wins a prize. It would be cool if some of the members here teamed up for it. Here is the info: http://spawnfest.com/
I will announce the next meetup in the coming week or so. It should be at the end of July or beginning of August. We are still looking for a speaker so if you want to volunteer, please send me a message. It doesn't have to be a long talk, we might have multiple shorter talks this time.
