This talk is an introduction to the Elixir language and some basic Functional Programming as well as some intro to the Erlang ecosystem. We will look at the Elixir language syntax, how to use Elixir and the technology of the Erlang community to make concurrent and distributed systems, and will also look at the emerging web ecosystem(Ecto and Dynamo) growing up around Elixir.
