  • ChatGPT as your Erlang coach by Georgiana Chelu


Introduction to fp-go, functional programming for golang

– Why FP and why Go?
– Short introduction to Go language features supporting (or interfering with) FP style
– Functional concepts supported by fp-go, including code examples
– Managed side effects and concurrency
– Reasons for using and for not using the library
– Performance

Dr. Carsten Leue

I am a software developer and architect at IBM R&D in Böblingen, Germany. Having worked on large scale backend and frontend solutions has led to value functional programming patterns, independent on the programming language. In this presentation I would like to discuss how such pattern can be applied to the Go programming language using the open source github.com/IBM/fp-go libary.


ChatGPT as your Erlang coach Georgiana Chelu @ CraftingSoftware

Georgiana has been an Erlang enthusiast for 7 years and many more to come. She takes pleasure in sharing her knowledge and gives back to the community by presenting Erlang insights at meetups.

In this fast-moving tech universe, Georgiana is always chasing the newest tools and trends in functional programming. She’s not just building the future; she’s creating it, one Erlang line at a time.
She’ll be giving a talk about learning Erlang with ChatGPT, so you can expect some insights about how to use it as a coach and the boundaries you need to be aware of.
