Elixir Training

Expanding the Elixir Developer Community

From Chris Bell and Desmond Bowe
hosts of the ElixirTalk podcast and
organizers of the EMPEX Conferences

Two Workshops Tailored to Your Needs

Different community members have different needs, so we're holding separate workshops to focus on what matters to you.

For Engineers

This workshop is about learning to write scalable, idiomatic Elixir applications. There will be lots of code. We'll cover the basics as well as advanced tooling and design patterns. You'll walk away ready to build your next production app in Elixir.

We expect you to have some programming experience, but no Elixir experience is required. If you've been coding in Elixir for years, you'll probably also learn something you haven't before.

For Managers

You've heard of Elixir and want to know its potential for your organization. Or you're interested in using it, but you're conscious of the risks in adopting a new platform.

This workshop will cover topics like how Elixir can give your organization the competitive edge and solve tomorrow's problems. We'll also address common questions around adoption tactics, hiring potential, and training your existing team.

Want Elixir Training in Your City?

We're going on the road to a handful of cities in the US and Canada to bring Elixir Training to you. Let us know where you are so we can add you to our list!
We'll announce the schedule in Summer 2019 and email you with the details.

Thanks! We'll be in touch.
All fields are required.

Why did we start Elixir Training? Because the world needs more Elixir developers and companies using Elixir. This first post lays out our goal of increasing the number of engineers getting paid to write Elixir and how we plan to achieve it.


Desmond Bowe and Chris Bell have a decade of combined experience programming in Elixir. They have run trainings, helped companies adopt Elixir, built out teams, and put dozens of Elixir apps into production. They're also fun to work with. We love bringing others into the community so come join us!
