Excited about Elixir but not sure how to get the most out of it? We’ve got you covered. In this episode, the Elixir Mix roundtable sits down with Alex Burlacu, a software developer whose specialities include Elixir, machine learning, and blowing his own mind. They talk about this ONE Elixir feature that surprised Alex, the do’s and don’ts of pattern matching and guards, and why Elixir is making Java shake in its boots.
_“It was really nice seeing how my students were reacting to what’s possible with Elixir. One of my students’ implementations was 5x simpler than Java!”
