I am Abhishek. Been trying to wrap my head around functional programming concepts like Pattern matching for about a month.

Coming from a python background, syntax of Elixir feels a bit familiar yet concepts are not so familiar!

Hoping to build some webapps in near future.

Hello everybody!
My name is William and I’m a civil engineering from Brazil, 33 years old but trying to change my path to a developer.
I started the civil engineering course because my father likes and the region I live in does not offer other options that I like, but today I see this was a wrong decision.
Anyway, nowadays I’m trying to improve my English and studying a lot over languages, focusing on Elixir as language and Phoenix as the main framework reading books, documentations and watching all kinds of stuff related to them, also enjoining a lot of courses and dreaming to be a junior developer in a company.
A short history about me =)

Hello !

My name is Eric, from France.
I’ve spent a few years working with PHP and learning Elixir on my free time.
2 years ago, I’ve been hired to work on the v2 of vetolib.fr
At the time, I was the only developer, and I was free to use whatever I wanted (tech related).
Naturally, I chose Elixir, along with Phoenix and Commanded for the back end and Vuejs for the front end.
The V2 is online and used everyday by pet owners and veterinarians for more than 1 year now, and it’s running pretty smoothly!

Hi all!

Tucker here from North Carolina, USA.

Started my first dev job as a PHP web developer but now I work with TypeScript/JavaScript/Python using Django and React. However, I am learning Elixir in my own time and I love writing simple scripts in Ruby.

I am a Linux enthusiast (Fedora KDE spin!) and love to contribute to openstreetmap :world_map:.
