"Let's get functional... functional." -Olambdia Newton-John

We'll be kicking off the first in a series of Elixir Games meetups. The "Games" format is designed to create a bit of friendly competition and is accessible for all ranges of experience; beginners and pros alike.

Early in this series we'll be focusing mostly on solving problems in a functional paradigm, and as the series continues over time we'll move more and more toward Elixir's differentiators; Erlang interop, hygienic macros, OTP patterns.

If all that read like gibberish to you, don't worry you don't have to know any of that jargon, and by the time you do everything will already make sense. Because we'll introduce ideas and concepts in a way that will help you understand those things conceptually before you ever need a weird name for them.

Food and drink will be provided. There will also be small desk fodder prizes for the winning teams.

Please make sure you come with a computer to work on and have Elixir pre-installed locally or in a VM and ready to go.
