Distel - 10 Years of (e)maxing out Erlang

Emacs has traditionally been the editor with the best Erlang support. Distel, created by Luke Gorrie et al in 2002, provides an implementation of the Erlang distribution protocol in emacs lisp.  Enabling communication between an Erlang emulator and emacs enables all kinds of cool tricks. 
Since this is the 10-year anniversary of Distel, I (the current maintainer) thought it fitting to present the current state of Distel. Which, in my unbiased opinion, is still the state of the art of Erlang editing.

Talk objectives: Get all those misguided vi-users to switch editor. 

Target audience: Anyone who wants to edit Erlang code, and is not afraid of the awesome power of emacs.
Mats Cronqvist is Host to the Following Tracks

Perhaps your use of Erlang has made you curious about other functional programming languages? Perhaps you are faced with having to understand and interface with other languages in your work? Or perhaps you just want to learn something new? This track lets you widen your horizons and delve into things non-Erlang, but which we believe Erlang developers will find of interest.
