    Elixir Games PDX - Traitorous Protocol Droids

    Similar to traits in other languages, Elixir Protocols are contracts that modules can implement for enabling collections (both sinks and sources) and inspection. We'll take a look at Protocols, how to adhere to them and how to create them.

    For the newcomers, the "Games" format is designed to create a bit of friendly competition and is accessible for all ranges of experience; beginners and pros alike.

    If you'd like to take a look at the previous sessions' exercises feel free to check them out here: https://github.com/elixir-pdx/, some submitted solutions are available on non-master branches.

    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 drinks will be provided.

    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.
