DFW Erlang – Erlang, Elixir, and LFE on a Raspberry Pi

For those of you who are, or will be, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, this is your friendly reminder that next Wednesday, July 1st, will be our monthly DFW Erlang User Group meeting.

We have recently moved to be hosted by Improving Enterprises, and now meet on the first Wednesday of the month.

This upcoming meeting, I will be going over different Erlang VM languages running on a Raspberry Pi. We will show Erlang, Elixir, and LFE running and see how many processes we can manage to kick off on a Raspberry Pi with 435MB of memory.

To RSVP and join us you can find the meeting announcement on here.

If you can’t join us at this meeting, we would love to see you at a future meeting.

And lastly, I want to give a great big Thank You to Duncan McGreggor and Robert Virding for all of their help in getting LFE setup on a Raspberry Pi. And another Thank You to Duncan for coming up with a demo for LFE after asking him if he knew of any good LFE projects that show off a number of processes being spawned up and interacting to push the bounds of a Raspberry Pi. If you can’t make it to our user group, make sure to check out his project at
