This workshop is an online workshop that will take place over two days:

  • Monday 3 May: 1pm - 5pm (AEST)
  • Tuesday 4 May: 1pm - 5pm (AEST)

Elixir is an extremely accessible functional programming language that is rapidly gaining popularity for good reason. With it's well curated, batteries-included tool chain, excellent documentation and it's sheer simplicity, not to mention its incredible 30+ year Erlang heritage.

The goal of this workshop is to get you a basic familiarity with Elixir and the tools you'll need to be effective working in the language. It will be aimed at programmers who don't know Elixir, and don't necessarily know any functional programming.

The workshop is organised around a set of exercises that should take you through the basics of the language. Once you've got to grips with the language and tools you'll be ready to build a real time game server. In this workshop you'll learn everything you need to start building amazing, production ready Elixir applications.
