Hail Elixir, the son of Erlang!

In this talk I will uncover a thinly veiled Ruby/Erlang world domination plot.

I will also give an intro to elixir a promising new language (with Ruby style syntax) that's targeting the Erlang virtual machine.

Elixir is garnering a lot of attention lately with a presentation at the last Erlang user conference and Joe Armstrong -- the Erlang inventor -- seems sympathetic to it.

Even Dave Thomas of PragProg fame is gung-ho about it and writes in his new book:

"The Elixir programming language wraps functional programming with immutable state and an actor-based approach to concurrency in a tidy, modern syntax. And it runs on the industrial strength, high performance, distributed Erlang VM."

There you go. I have shattered all the excuses for not attending this talk and am looking forward to seeing you all :-)

BTW: "the son of Erlang" quip is from this Joe Armstrong talk which you should watch no matter what.
