A learning events, where we have a professional come in and present various platforms, languages, or techniques in the developing world.

This Month's Title: 

Speaker: Matthew Caldwell 


What will we discuss?
Elixir is a programming language that runs on the Erlang virtual machine (VM). Elixir was created on top of Erlang to solve problems with concurrency that existed in the previous generation of backend solutions (Rails, Django).

The result is a functional, concurrent language that shares Erlang abstractions for building distributed, fault-tolerant applications.

In this talk, we will discuss why Elixir is the best language for solving modern problems and why Phoenix is the best framework for building modern web applications.
