Elixir is the new hot language among folks who are looking for performance, reliability and scalability. It also helps that its a fun language to use.

If you’re already a programmer, you can pick up most of Elixir in a day. Come and join Dave Thomas (author of Programming Elixir) as we explore the language. We’ll all be coding most of the day as we follow a progression of exercises, each illustrating new features of the language and its environment.

This course has a flexible agenda—we’ll go fast, but were not committed to complete all the material. Instead, the goal is to give you a solid foundation from which to start coding Elixir on your own.

WHAT WILL I LEARN

Topics can include:

  • effective use of tools such as IEx and mix
  • syntax and semantics of Elixir
  • functional programming, transformation, and pattern matching
  • structuring projects
  • testing
  • concurrency, processes, and the actor model
  • agents and tasks
  • OTP Applications, Supervisors, and Servers
  • Phoenix

Bring a laptop with Elixir already installed. Instructions are here: https://elixir-lang.org/install.html
