Intro to Elixir
EDIT - previous the description indicated this was a two part class. It is not.
Elixir is a functional programming language with a Ruby-like syntax that runs on the Erlang virtual machine. This is cool because:
The Erlang VM is battle tested, has great concurrency support, and is fault-tolerant. We can use it to build incredibly fast, concurrent, robust web applications.
Learning functional programming is mind-expanding and a great way to improve your skills.
Elixir's Ruby-ish syntax and great tooling make it a compelling alternative to Ruby in some cases. It's also fun!
This will be an interactive class where we will learn the basics of Elixir and some basic functional programming concepts.
Also, you need to have Elixir installed on your machine. Installing Elixir
