Learn Elixir with Prag Dave
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
