Event Details

Elixir is a functional meta-programming aware language built on top of the Erlang VM. It is a dynamic language with flexible and homoiconic syntax that leverages Erlang's abilities to build concurrent, distributed, fault-tolerant applications with hot code upgrades.

Some say Elixir is like CoffeeScript for Erlang. To extent, this is true. But it is much more than that that — it combines the raw power of Erlang VM with Lisp-like macros, more familiar kind of syntax, some features from Clojure and a strong focus on usability... not to mention its own evolving standard library (which is quite nice!)

Our webinar organizer, Yurii, being an Erlang developer since around 2001, has been involved with Elixir since early 2012 and couldn't resist the temptation to switch over. He has contributed a number of features into the languages itself (like type specifications support) as well as some third party libraries (GenX and others).

Elixir is new and not fully mature yet — but it's evolving rapidly and gaining more and more traction across the developers community. It's about time to learn more about what Elixir can offer and how one can use it.


During this webinar, we'll go through the basics of the language and create an example application to enable all attendees to explore this interesting language on their own.

We would expect you to know at least basic Erlang in order to gain most value out of this webinar. If you're interested in learning more about Erlang itself, e-mail us at courses@spawngrid.com
