As a developer we should strive to learn how others think, learn simple tools and embrace proven ideas to shape your own. Ruby is object-oriented and functional. We'll explore how learning functional concepts may help you build simpler Ruby code. Learn the basics of Erlang, what it offers, how we can relate it to Ruby. Furthermore, we'll look at a couple cool Erlang projects that may be worth trying and contributing to.
