This month’s Erlang User Group meeting will sport an Introduction to Erlang by Florian Ebeling. Florian stepped up to satisfy frequent request by newcomers to give a introductory presentation about Erlang. Thanks Florian!
I like to describe Erlang (and I sure stole that somewhere), as a “Language, a Virtual Machine and a Standard Library”. This is quite a bunch of things to learn. Florian will show you how to get started quickly and how to make sense of all the pieces without getting confused and how to write beautifully concurrent and faul-tolerant applications in Erlang.
