Functional Data Structures in Elixir

October 13 - October 13, 2021

In this talk, presented by AJ, we will learn how Elixir lays out structures in memory, and how it behaves when we transform data immutably. Then, we’ll use this knowledge to guide how we choose data structures for a real world app.

After the scheduled talk, we’ll open the floor for lightning talks. If you are interested in presenting on a short topic, or sharing something cool, this is your time! Feel free to ask for aux or hit me up directly and I’ll be more than happy to help get you set up :)

Online Project Night / Show and Tell

October 19 - October 19, 2021

Just because we are sheltering in place, doesn’t mean you can’t spend time with other Alchemists!

Project Night is a free-form event where you can meet, socialize, and collaborate on projects with other members! Alchemists of all levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Have you worked on something interesting that you want to show off? Have a problem you’ve been stumped with? Bring them to the group!

We are also open to suggestions for other formats and are exploring ideas like:

  • Open source code reading - read popular open source project and learn how they work
  • Mob programming - work on some code together; this can be for an open-source project or something you’re working on

OTP Training for Elixir Programmers - Europe

October 25 - October 29, 2021

A 5-day, instructor-led course on OTP behaviours for developers with basic knowledge of sequential and concurrent Elixir

About this event

Learn how to scale your Elixir to billions. So you’ve built and deployed a Phoenix application backed by Ecto and Postgres, and come to the conclusion that you love it! This three-days online training is perfect for you to progress to the next level and help you understand what happens behind the scenes when building applications using OTP behaviours. Learn about the battle-tested abstractions needed to build back-end, fault-tolerant systems that will run for years and scale to billions of users. We’ll have plenty of time to work on labs along the way as you hone your skills and put the theory into practice. About half of the class is either lab work or coding side-by-side with your instructor.

Ninth Func Prog Sweden MeetUp 2021

October 26 - October 26, 2021

This MeetUp will be streamed live online on the Func Prog Sweden YouTube channel:

The program starts at 18.

  • Intro by Magnus Sedlacek
  • Transferring the System Modeler code base to OCaml by Leonardo Laguna Ruiz
  • Erlang Oddities by Brujo Benavides

Abstract for Transferring the System Modeler code base to OCaml

System Modeler is an easy-to-use, next-generation modeling and simulation environment for cyber-physical systems. The System Modeler kernel code base was initially developed in a small language from Linköpings Universitet called MetaModelica (previously RML). The MetaModelica language had some limitations and bugs. As our code base grew, it became very hard to maintain and adding new features was a slow and inefficient process. For that reason we decided to port hundreds of thousands of lines of code to a different language. In this talk Leonardo Laguna will present why we decided to move to OCaml, how we did it, and what we have learnt from that.

Abstract for Erlang Oddities

For a long time, I’ve been collecting several curious, weird and sometimes funny Erlang bits. I like to share them with you so we can all laugh but also learn from them.
