Erlang Workshop

Playing with Erlang - introduction workshop

A hands-on workshop for getting yourself acquainted with Erlang. The workshop is targeted at people who:

1. May have seen a line of Erlang code but freaked out of the syntax 2. Have heard about Erlang and thinks it might be able to save the world

We will try to spend more time on writing code than talking about the history of Erlang or reasons to use it. As a result you can atleast expect to be able to produce a distributed "hello world" program in Erlang, and depending on your motiviation maybe something more useful as well. The plan for the workshop consists of some exposure to syntax and types, erlang tool-chain, printing stuff to the screen and making your code talk with other people over the network. By the end of the day you should have implemented your own primitive chat client that will be able to talk with all the other peoples client in a ad-hoc serverless network.

Bring a laptop so you can code, after all this is a workshop :)

    Cool to see Erlang. Awesome to have an instructor with real-life experience of Erlang in a proper, commercial project! Can't be too many of those in Oslo...
