#About the Talk

Elixir provides us with a really powerful way to achieve ad hoc polymorphism. In this talk, we will look at how this extensibility compares to what we might have in an OOP language, and what we can do with it.

# About the Speaker

Part-time property developer, full-time software developer, Adam got sick of sailing around the world on super yachts and decided to get a proper job.

He has been using Elixir at work for a year now, and no one has told him to stop, which he takes as encouragement...

# About the Company
