Nick Barend will give a short introduction to Erlang: a whirlwind
introduction to the language basic interactive shell usage concurrency
primitives (spawn, messaging sending, message receiving) TCP
This will be a combination of discussion and hands-on sessions.
Please bring a laptop with an SSH client (don’t bother with installing
Erlang, we’ll connect to preconfigured environments).
The meeting went great. Nick, though not claiming to be an expert, was very knowledgeable. He is an excellent presenter.
