What happens if use BEAM in different ways?

Interesting report by a skilled developer on the topic: "Transforming Programming"
18 August 2017   407

When it comes to BEAM, the last thing that everybody wants to do is break something good. At the same time, it’s also a bad idea to degrade.

It is on this basis that Dave Thomas explores what happens if he takes BEAM and starts using it in different ways. In this talk, Dave shares his great thought-provoking way of understanding and teaching programming as a state transition as he experiments with programming by transformation. Does Dave succeed in freeing himself, and the community, from the “tyranny of the program counter”? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Video is full of code examples and will suit both for beginner and intermediate coders.
