Lenz Gschwendtner – Parallel Programming – An Overview of Non Mainstream Languages

The recent rise of functional programming languages is not only a search for alternatives to the established C / C++ and Java world but also a quest to simplify multicore programming.

Lenz will give an overview of the variety of functional programming languages that are open source and try to conquer the concurrent programming space. He will look at Erlang, Scala and F# but also venture into less prominent ones like the RoarVM.

Go with him on a journey through the current variety of options and watch out for your new favorite language on the way.
