Presenting Erlang at the Polyglot Programmers of Chicago meetup on September 23rd

Update ... this talk has been moved from the 24th to the 23rd

I'll be visiting Obtiva later this month to present Erlang, here are the details. I'm probably going to gloss over plain vanilla functional programming principles in order to focus more on concurrency, as well as another equally important and overlooked core feature ... reliability. We'll cover the basics of what an Erlang process is, runtime code swapping, and a brief intro to a few Erlang OTP behaviours. Attendees should walk away from this presentation with a few new ideas in their heads and enough information to be dangerous. My slides are on SlideShare.
