This workshop is intended to reach out to women, transgender and non-binary people, and people of color who have some prior programming experience and are interested in learning web development with Elixir and Phoenix. If you are a cis-white man, you're welcome to attend as the +1 of a woman, non-binary person, trans person, or person of color attending.
In this workshop, we'll take you through the process of a web app with Elixir and Phoenix. We'll learn about the power of asynchronous processes, functional programming, and massive parallel connections. We'll also gain a basic understanding of Elixir syntax, and get a feel for its idiosyncrasies.
Thank you to Carbon Five for hosting!
