What we’re about
What is Elixir?
Elixir is a dynamic functional language based on almost 30 years old Erlang language and platform. Erlang is used in the systems that require high throughput and reliability (uptime). Examples of such systems are telecom servers and also big Internet apps like WhatsApp. Elixir is running on Erlang's virtual machine called BEAM. Elixir author José Valim got inspiration from languages like Ruby, Clojure and of course Erlang. For web development with Elixir there has recently been released a version 1.0 of Phoenix framework. Phoenix and Elixir combination is distringuished by µS response times, short and long term productivity, advanced failure handling and much more.

Do you have side projects that need working on?
Are you fairly new and do you want to work on some open source stuff next to some Elixir Pros who can answer all (well a lot of) your questions?
It officially starts at 18:30 but I'll be there around 17:30 if you want to get a lot of hacking in.
Do you like Punsch? Gluewein? Maybe Pizza? Definitely some unhealthy snacks?
Then see you at doloops for our Holiday Edition of Elixir Vienna.
Don't be naughty and miss it!
Santa and the doloops team have a list.
