  • Trace Debugging With Erlyberly by Andy Till
    2016-10-04 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2016/andy-till The BEAM virtual machine has flexible and powerful tooling from introspection, statistics and debugging without affecting the running application. Erlyberly is an ongoing project to lower the barrier for entry for using these capabilities, focusing on tracing. Talk objectives: Learn how to debug Erlang, Elixir and LFE applications using tracing with erlyberly. Target audience: Erlang, Elixir and LFE developers. ...

  • LFE: A Real Lisp in the Erlang Ecosystem by Robert Virding
    2016-09-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Slides and more info: http://www.erlang-factory.com/euc2016/robert-virding Why yet another lisp? This talk will look at some of the basic properties of the Erlang VM and OTP and how they affect implementing languages on it. It will show what makes existing lisps, even Clojure, a bad fit. LFE (Lisp Flavoured Erlang) has been designed to run efficiently on the Erlang VM and at the same time be a "real lisp" providing Lisp's good bits. We will describe the language and how it uses the properties ...

  • 8LU with Robert Virding: Erlang, Concurrency and LFE (Lisp Flavoured Erlang)
    2016-04-20 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Erlang was designed around a set of requirements for telecom systems. They were distributed, massively concurrent systems which had to scale with demand, be capable of handling massive peak loads and never fail. The Erlang concurrency and error-handling model was developed around these requirements. This part of the talk describes how Erlang was designed, the actual concurrency model and how it is used to build systems. Why yet another lisp? Why do we need/want a new lisp for the Erlang VM? W ...

  • EUC 2014 – Duncan McGreggor – The State of LFE: A Lisp Flavoured Smörgåsbord
    2014-07-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    In the LFE talk given at Erlang Factory San Francisco 2014, we got up and running with LFE: everything from the basics through use in cloud apps and building RESTful services. We even explored the fringe with GP and HTNs. This talk will provide a brief overview of these but then continue with the latest exciting developments in the language and the community. Talk objectives: - Provide a brief overview of what a Lisp in the 21st century provides. - Review several of the more useful/prevalen ...

  • Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE)
    2010-11-07 Erlang Central

    Videos



    His talk will describe Lisp Flavoured Erlang which is another programming language running on the Erlang VM. LFE is a dialect of Lisp which has been designed around the properties of the VM and to be completely compatible with vanilla Erlang and OTP. It fully supports the Erlang concurrency and error handling model and can be used with all the OTP behaviours. Using Erjang, LFE brings both Lisp and and the Erlang concurrency model together to the JVM. The language will be described using the p ...

  • Lisp Flavoured Erlang
    2009-04-27 Erlang Central

    Videos

    In this talk we will describe and demonstrate Lisp Flavored Erlang (LFE). LFE allows you to write Erlang code in a lisp syntax and combines the versatility and extensibility of lisp with the COP power of Erlang. LFE is completely integrated with Erlang/OTP and code written in LFE can freely be used together with modules written in vanilla Erlang and applications in Erlang/OTP. LFE is also much easier to use than vanilla Erlang when generating code. We will describe the system, its tools a ...
