Pyrlang: Python meets Erlang

What could we get out of merging two communities?

The creation of Pyrlang, a framework for allowing communication between Erlang and Python, was to allow two languages to benefit from each other's strengths without needing to redo everything in a new language.

Johan will present a quick overview of Pyrlang and its capabilities and make some use case discussions around a future project within AI / ML and web development.


Get people interested in the combination of Erlang and Python and spawn ideas of what we can do next
