- installed Erlang environment (r14 or newer)
- text editor of choice
- basic knowledge of Erlang syntax and functional programming concepts
This event will concentrate on introduction to Erlang language by some hands-on exercises interleaved with bits of presentation (or the other way round). We will concentrate on features that make Erlang distinguishable - concurrency and functional approach. To make this event more interesting, as a main topic we've chosen an exercise to implement Scala's Futures in Erlang (http://docs.scala-lang.org/overviews/core/futures.html). This should make this meeting more approachable to people already familiar with Scala.
