Where are We on the Map?
The Erlang/OTP team has been investigating and prototyping a new built in datatype “maps” for a while now. This talk will give you insight in the journey towards the current status when it comes to “better records” with atoms as keys and with more general “maps” with any terms as keys.
Talk objectives: Broaden the knowledge about what the Erlang “maps” will be like.
Target audience: SW developers with interest in programming language design and virtual machine design.
