Teaching Functional Programming with Elixir

Adolfo Neto is an Associate Professor at the Federal University of Technology, Paraná. His research interests are software development communities and agile methods. He is co-creator and co-host of the Fronteiras da Engenharia de Software podcast, the Elixir em Foco podcast, and Emílias Podcast - Women in Computing, all in Portuguese. He is also co-creator and co-host of the Hello, Erlang! podcast (now on pause). He has been studying Elixir since 2018.

About the presentation: Software developers are invited to contribute to the development of a course on functional programming that uses Elixir as its main language. This talk explores the use of Elixir as a functional programming language, discussing its benefits and drawbacks for teaching. Your insights and experiences will be crucial in shaping a curriculum that imparts functional programming concepts effectively, using Elixir as a tool to enhance understanding. Your participation will help ensure the course aligns with the needs and expectations of fellow developers in the field.
