Elixir, Erlang, and Cucumberl

17th September 2013 in New York City at DUMBO Spot

There are 9 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! NYC

This session was not filmed.

Elixir is a new Ruby-inspired programming language that uses the powerful concurrent machinery of Erlang behind the scenes. Cucumberl is a port of Cucumber to Erlang. Let's see what happens when we put them together.

In this talk, we'll discuss:

  • How Erlang's concurrency makes it easier to write robust programs
  • Elixir's approachable syntax
  • How to test Erlang and Elixir programs using Cucumberl

Attendees will walk away with a solid introduction to the principles of Erlang, and an appreciation of the way Elixir brings the joy of Ruby to the solidity of the Erlang runtime.
