I attended Functional Conf 2017 held at Fortune Park, Bangalore. This was one of a kind event. I attended the pre-conf workshop by Francesco Cesarini, Founder and Director of Erlang Solutions, on Reactive Systems & Microservices Architecture, where he talked about building fault tolerant, scalable system architectures. It was an amazing session. This event was the first Erlang & Elixir Factory Lite conference in India. I met with Robert Virding, the co-inventor of the Erlang programming language and attended his post-conf session on Deep Dive into Erlang Ecosystem where he talked about Erlang, its history, the Erlang Virtual Machine, OTP and such. These were fun filled sessions with meaningful discussions. Had a great experience. And I also came to know that Robert Virding's favourite programming language is LFE (Lisp Flavoured Erlang). Finally we greeted goodbyes till next time. Amazing people!
