Abstract: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.
Biography:Robert Virding is one of the original developers of Erlang at the Ericsson Computer Science Lab. While there he also did work on garbage collection and the implementation of high-level languages. He left Ericsson to found Bluetail, the first Erlang startup acquired by Nortel in 2000. He now works for the Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) where he is not able to use Erlang. He does, however, still program Erlang in his spare time and take part in the Erlang community.
