Welcome to the 5th meeting of the group, "7 Languages in 7 Months NYC," where we make our way through the book "Seven Languages in Seven Weeks," by Bruce Tate.
This month we're doing Erlang, a concurrent, functional programming language with strong support for distributed systems and fault tolerance (among other things). The talk will be by Mahesh Paolini-Subramanya, CTO of Vocalocity, who will have just gotten back from Erlang Factory (http://www.erlang-factory.com/conference/SFBay2013) in San Francisco.
You'll get the most out of the presentation and discussion if you read the chapter and attempt the exercises beforehand, but by all means, come to the talk whether you have done so or not.
Hope to see you there.
And: free beer and pizza.
