1.1 Introduction

Welcome to Get Started With Elixir. In this course, I'll teach you the Elixir language. Along the way, you'll learn some key functional programming concepts.

1.1 Introduction

If you have used an object or entered language, you will find that functional programming is quite different. But that shouldn't scare you. The differences are there for a reason. Elixir is a functional programming language that is based on Erlang. It is influenced by Ruby to increase extensibility and productivity. Hello and welcome, I'm Markus Muhlberger, and you are watching the Envato Tuts+ course, Get Started With Elixir. In this course, you will learn about functional programming paradigms in general and how they are applied in Elixir. You will learn about the language's syntax and core concepts. And finally, we are going to look at one of the main features of the language, concurrency. To do this we are going to utilize the OTP framework and Erlang project to build concurrent and distributed applications. I hope you're eager to get functional. I will see you in the first lesson.
