Erlang, Elixir, concurrency and functional programming
I toyed with Erlang a little while ago as I enjoyed functional programming in my early days.
In fact, I fell back into Erlang recently when I found people were doing for erlang VM what they’d been doing for the Java JVM – writing other languages that compiled to the VM.
So, go figure someone has done a version of Jason (agent oriented) at eJason.
Lisp is there with Lisp Flavored Erlang.
And Elixir is a new functional language to make using the OTP gentler than Erlang itself.
So, I have had to fire up my Debian64 to play with eJason and LFE, but my windoze box happily allows me to play with Erlang and Elixir.
I am slowing working through trying to get Erlang running on the bbb as well.
