Lisp Flavoured Erlang

By Erlang Central | Published: April 27, 2009

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 and its implementation, and also demonstrate some of
its features and using its programming environment.

    Inventor of Erlang and Bluetail co-founder

    Robert Virding worked at the Ericsson Computer Science Laboratory and was one of the initial Erlang design group. He has took part in the original system design and contributed much of the original libraries, as well as to the current compiler. While at the lab he also did a lot of work on the implementation of logic and functional languages and on garbage collection. He has also worked as an entrepreneur and was one of the co-founders of one of the first Erlang startups (Bluetail). Robert now works for the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) in a modelling and simulation group where he mainly works with computer games. He contributes to the Erlang community in his spare times and has written a number of books and articles on Erlang.
