Elixir is a new functional programming language based on the Erlang virtual machine, and it'll make you start thinking about programming in a completely new way. In this session I'll introduce some of the concepts of Elixir while writing some beginner-level programs. We'll explore Elixir's powerful pattern matching syntax and other features as we write programs free of loops, mutable variables, and "IF/ELSE" statements.
If you're a newbie to programming, you'll love this talk. And if you're an experienced developer, get ready to feel like a complete newbie again. Either way, it'll be a blast!
