Meetup details changed: Elixir: A modern approach to programming for the Erlang VM - Jose Valim

From: Jeanine J.
Sent on: Thursday, September 6, 2012 11:27 AM

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

Elixir is a programming language for the Erlang VM. Elixir provides a
first class macro mechanism, supports polymorphism via protocols
(similar to Clojure's) and many other features while keeping the
functional aspects of Erlang used to build distributed, fault-tolerant

In this talk, José Valim will cover the main goals and features in
Elixir while also presenting some of the rationale and changes behind
the language design and its latest tools.
