I’ve been pushing hard on learning Erlang for about four months now, and this week felt like a good time to give a talk on what I’ve learned so far. To aid in my learning back in December I started developing Gridlock, a multi-player minesweeper clone that I’ve built in the past with Node and Rails.
All in all it went really well and I am excited and ready to dive into learning Elixir next. I have enjoyed learning functional programming languages and think there is some really good lessons to learn from them. I’m not sure what will be on my horizon next; however, I feel more confident having added this knowledge to my tool belt!
Edit: You can find an example of Gridlock here: Gridlock
