Chicago Erlang User Group Meeting Dec 16th

The time and location:
We are confirmed for Wednesday Dec 16 at 6:00. Orbitz has agreed again to let us use their office space for the meetup. I need all the names of the people that will attend so I can place them on the security list. Please email to RSVP at martinjlogan -at- gmail.

The address for the talk is 500 W. Madison St, Chicago IL (the Olgilvie transportation center). Come up to the third floor, show your ID to the people at the desk. and give me a ring at 312 772 2310 so someone can come down and get you.


The Talk:
Martin Logan (me) will be giving a talk on OTP fundamentals. The talk will focus on behaviour basics and terminology and how this relates to OTP Application packages and then ultimately how Application packages relate to OTP Releases. After this talk you should be able to create sound OTP deployable units. This talk assumes some knowledge of Erlang; basically the ability to define modules and to read syntax.

P.S The meeting is BYOB

Hackathon


Two Chicago Erlangers will be doing something similar to this, for the Hackathon at Pumping Station in our fair city .

They are planning on putting together an interactive multiuser game with a Javascript client running in the browser connecting to an Erlang backend running in a Mochiweb server. It'll use long-polling comet to keep the players' browsers updated.

If anyone else in the area is interested in coding for 16 or so hours with them send email to our mailing list at ceug@googlegroups.com.

Second Monthly Meeting (with slideshow)

The second Chicago Erlang User Group meeting was a really nice time. Orbitz was kind enough to host it at their headquarters. About 17 folks showed up and so did about 10 different kinds of really nice beer - and some Ice House which remained unfinished. Lennart Ohman one of the creators of OTP came and gave a presentation which entertained everyone in attendance. You can find the presentation here where it is hosted on our google groups mailing list page.
