(Given to the Vancouver Erlang and Ruby/Rails Meetup groups on June 17, 2009.)
A follow-up to last month's "Intro to Erlang" (http://www.slideshare.net/kenpratt/intro-to-erlang), this talk will dive into the core components of the Erlang programming language, including processes, pattern matching, and message passing. Unlike the previous talk, it will be light on hype and loaded with code samples.
If you missed the previous talk, you might want to run through the slides quickly at http://www.slideshare... before coming to get a brief overview Erlang.
