Is Elixir the Next Ruby? - Hal Fulton (doors open @ 6:30pm)
About the talk: Ruby is still my favorite language, but it’s not the only language in the world. Lately I have been getting into Elixir, which is partly inspired by Ruby (both the syntax and the community). It’s been an important addition to my mental toolbox, and I think it’s going to be bigger in the future. Hal Fulton is the author of The Ruby Way, now in its third edition. He is working on a book Elixir for the Rubyist, to be released later in 2018. He has two degrees in computer science and more than 20 years in the industry, including a few years of teaching. His short stories have been rejected by some of the finest magazines in the country. On rare occasions he plays chess and piano, both incredibly badly. He spends his spare time putting Slinkys on escalators and passing counterfeit bills to tourists.

    This is a group devoted to Ruby, a great language used for things beyond rails. We talk about sinatra, deep dives into the workings of Ruby, and other things we find interesting as Rubyists.
