YOW! Introductory Workshop (Beginner - Intermediate): Intro to Elixir

with Josh Price and James Sadler

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.

James is a polyglot software developer with a love for functional programming and technical communities. He has run Rails and Elixir Camps, volunteered for Elixir Girls, and co-hosts the GraphQL Sydney and Elixir Sydney meetups.

Originally from the UK, James arrived in Australia in 2005 and his early Australian career was characterised by traditional enterprise software development.
