Training Classes

This year ElixirConf® has 14 classes to choose from! There are seven classes to select for each day of training. Also this year, each class stands as an independent class, so you have many options when selecting class pairs to best meet your needs. Three of the classes are run on Tuesday and Wednesday so you can better select classes that fit your needs.

Each training class is a full-day class with six hours of training. You may register for one class for each day of training.

There are seven classes to choose from for Tuesday and seven classes to choose from for Wednesday. All of the trainers are either authors, core team members, or have professional experience in the area of their training class.

Suggested Class Pairings

To help you get the most from your Elixir training, below are some recommended class pairings that can aid you in deciding which classes to take.

New to Elixir

Ideal For: Web and Enterprise developers new to Elixir.

Learn Elixir from Elixir core team members Eric and Andrea on day one, then follow up that training with Darin (author of Programming Ecto) and Eric on day two. These trainers will provide you with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Elixir and databases.

New to Phoenix

Ideal For: Developers looking to level up on Phoenix by learning how and why to leverage PubSub, Channels, Presence and LiveView together to create elegant real-time features.

Elixir School is bringing you a two-day series of classes that will help you level up with Phoenix’s real-time and interactive capabilities. Each day stands on its own, but taken together they’ll walk you through some basic features, like channels, to more advanced tools, like LiveView. You’ll get a taste of what Phoenix can do and will walk away from the class with the tools you need to build your own highly performant, real-time apps at work or at home.

New to Deployment

Ideal For: Developers ready to deploy their first Elixir application and developers in need of a deployment pipeline for Elixir that they can understand and tweak as needed.

Together these classes take you from a working application all the way to a complete deployment pipeline. We'll begin by showing you how to prepare an Elixir application for deployment while making sure you include access to any scripts you need to be able to trigger externally, you setup proper configuration for each box your code will run on, and you know how to use Elixir's best debugging tools on your live system. From there we'll move on to deploying your code with a proper pipeline. We'll cover the usual blue/green deployments and rollback, but also extras like smoke testing and clustering your instances. This is a one two punch for finally understanding Elixir deployments.
