Celluloid with Adam Holt

Thursday 21st June 6:30pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)

This month Adam Holt will be talking about Celluloid.

Celluloid is an implementation of the Actor pattern in ruby, inspired heavily by Erlang. The meeting will be held at Madlab, followed by drinks across the road in Common.

What is Celluloid

Celluloid is a concurrent object oriented programming framework for Ruby which lets you build multithreaded programs out of concurrent objects just as easily as you build sequential programs out of regular objects.

We will dive into Celluloid, touching briefly on DCell, Celluloid::IO and Reel.
