We are a group of Erlang Enthusiasts who are interested in sharing their knowledge and meeting people who share similar interests. We meet on regular basis to pick each other's brains, learn about new projects, enjoy pizza and beer. We also have cookies.
The group is open to Erlang Architects, Programmers, Project Managers, Software and Platform Innovators, and existing Erlang users as well as Erlang newbies and anyone interested in Erlang.
This month Ludwik Bukowski & Kacper Mentel will give a talk comparing Elixir with Scala:
Both Scala and Elixir take advantage of functional programming concepts and provide the right tools for building highly concurrent, scalable and distributed systems.
One can wonder which of the two is a better choice for a certain use case?
As engineers, we prefer concrete numbers to all the buzzwords, so we load tested a simple-problem application implemented in both technologies to see their performance.
Join us on the meetup to see the results!
* 4 Thursdays, starting from 21.11 (18:00 - 20:00);
* to join fill: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSebRbjYMq3WKKPUS1KrcoPpWUq0e7cBWuVTjanO79EVC9kkBg/viewform before 14.11;
* chosen candidates will receive invitations by 18.11.
* your own laptop with Mac OS or Linux is required (if you use Windows, please set up a virtual machine with a Linux)
* try installing Erlang (21.2 or newer if possible), git and make (in case of any troubles, do not worry I dedicated the second half of first classes to help you with that :) )
This course is a quick start, hands-on introduction to the World of Erlang. During 4 meetings (21.11, 28.11, 5.12, 12.12) we will build a simple user authentication application from scratch. We will start from a quick introduction to Erlang syntax, then go through BEAM process handling and supervising, building the application, testing it and distributing over remote computers. Erlang developer tools will be presented, to teach you how to troubleshoot.
Not sure if this is for you? See if you match any of the following:
* You are interested in learning some Erlang;
* You are interested in functional programming or distributed systems;
* You are sick and tired of slow sequential code;
See you in class!
