What we’re about

Almost 29 years ago Erlang was developed by Joe Armstrong, Robert Virding and Mike Williams at Ericsson to solve problems in telecommunication networks.

Erlang describes itself as:

`general-purpose programming language and runtime environment with built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance.`

The years goes by but Erlang somehow never reached the mainstream programmer ...

Until now! 

José Valim brought Erlang to the 21th century. He builds a dynamic, functional programming language on top of Erlang.

Elixir was born. 

This meetup aims to build up a community of open minded people in the Ruhr region that are interested in the Elixir programming language.

You can find us on Gitter, Twitter and Github.
