Elixir Hack, Help, or Get Help

Public WiFi

Until we build back up to a larger crowd, we'll be trying to find tables the common area. Look for a small sign with the elixir logo on it. Double-check both inside and outside. If you don't see it, we probably haven't found a table yet.



The Portland Elixir/BEAM group is getting back together in the physical world for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

Hack and Help Night Expectations

Hack and help nights are you opportunity to meet other people interested in Elixir or other BEAM-based languages in the real world. You can be a total newbie or just have interest in some of the ideas it brings.

Some free food and drink will be provided courtesy of sponsors.

You should try to attend if you:

Are new to Elixir and want to see what it's all about.

Need help with something you're working on or an idea you have.

You like listening and helping others, or just want to motivate people.

Want access to some hardware, electronics and sensors to play around with Nerves on.

Want to discuss the latest happenings in the community.

Need somewhere away from home to work on a project.

Just want something social to do.

We're still trying to lock in the venue for the in-person events and venues may change over time, as might the rules regarding masking depending on peoples' comfort level.

For the most part, the mask rules will follow the same restrictions as the venue and will evolve based on current trends of the virus and feedback from the community. If you're interacting with or sitting next to someone, and they would prefer for you to also be masked while nearby, please be considerate of their request.

Future Meeting Cadence

We'll be switching to the following format moving forward:

Last Tuesday of the month remains a virtual-only event, combining both the Portland and Seattle groups and anybody else who would like to join us virtually. This event has been mostly a "demos on demand" during the pandemic but will start to move back toward a 50/50 split with a pre-announced presentation for part of the event. If you have something you'd like to talk about, let the event coordinator know (see Event Coordinator Contact below). Future event dates will be: Apr 26, May 31, Jun 28, and Jul 26.

Two weeks before the meeting on the last Tuesday (third from last Tuesday), will be an in-person hack and help night in Seattle. Future event dates will be: Apr 12, May 17, Jun 14, and Jul 12.

The following night after the Seattle hack night will be an in-person hack and help night in Portland. Future event dates will be: Apr 13, May 18, Jun 15, and Jul 13.
