Nov 3 ATDD User Group – Elixir/Hound

Come see a demo of Elixir/Hound in action.  During this demo by Centric’s Donavan Stanley he will demo the Elixir/Hound marriage.

Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications. Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development and the embedded software domain .  Phoenix framework is a nice Elixir web-framework with very useful features. Hound is a library to write browser-based integration tests in Elixir (and also automate browsers if you like).

This is a marriage of functional programming with test automation that could be the way to the future for building scalable, distributed, fault-tolerant test suites.

This Meetup is hosted by Improving and will be 1 Easton Oval.

Startup Weekend Columbus: Smart City Edition! May 13-15!

Startup Weekend Columbus: Smart City Edition is coming to Columbus for the first time! All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, UX/design, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for feedback and to win prizes.

This event will be held May 13-15 at Rev1 Ventures. Find more info or reserve your ticket here: http://swcbus.com
