Papers we love - Elixir edition, Andrea Leopardi

I wish I could go to the Curry On conference, where Andrea Leopardi will present Papers we love - Elixir edition.

Elixir is a modern programming language built for concurrency, robustness, and maintainability. Although the Elixir team came from “industry” backgrounds, the history of Elixir is full of cases where the team has reached for existing research in order to solve problems arising with the language. For example, we based our implementation of a code formatter on a series of papers on pretty printing and formatting code. In this talk, I’d like to go share our learnings and experiences as a bunch of industry folks getting help from academia to approach and tackle real-world problems and come up with real-world solutions.

They will probably post videos of talks here after the conference.


Sounds like it will be a great talk, and I love how Elixir is tackling real world problems using research and tried and tested methods :023:
