Prerequisities: Good programming skills in another language such as Java, Perl, Python, node.js, or Ruby. Familiarity with server-side software development helpful.


  • Basic/Sequential/Concurrent Elixir
  • Parallel Programming
  • Introducing to OTP (GenServers and Supervisors)
  • Introducing to Task and Agents
  • Building, Documenting and Testing Systems using Mix
    Course Outline Students will start by learning the basics of the Elixir language. Following that, the course turns to concurrency and students will learn the details of writing parallel and concurrent Elixir applications and the underlying concurrency capabilities provided by BEAM (the Erlang virtual machine). The course shows the right way to write concurrent applications that will scale by using OTP Behaviours. The course contains the following topics:

  • Background Erlang/Elixir

  • Elixir Shell

  • Sequential Elixir

  • Concurrent Elixir

  • Basic Mix

  • Process Design Patterns

  • Process Error Handling

  • System introspection

  • Funs and High-order functions

  • Data structures (Maps, Structs, Binaries, Protocols)

  • List comprehensions

  • Language features and Macros

  • Erlang Term Storage (ETS)

  • Distributed programming

  • Code updating

  • OTP and Behaviours

  • Generic Servers

  • Supervisors

  • State Machines

  • Tasks and Agents

  • Applications

  • Release handling via Distiller
