Elixir Mentors

Our mentors are the human element behind Exercism, providing empathetic feedback on learners' solutions.

I have had an interest in functional programming for years, and Elixir has been my outlet for a while now. I love being able to program without hidden side effects, and I love the way functional programming changes the way you think about program flow.

I love Elixir because I believe it can provide both dynamic polymorphism and referential transparency, which are both fundamental for writing clean code.

I love Elixir because of it's explicitness and oh the pattern matching is amazing.

I love Elixir for its pragmatic approach to functional programming, its small syntax, and its macro language. OTP on the BEAM (ErlangVM) is beautiful. I have professionally written and deployed networked software with Elixir.

I'm a software engineer. I develop high load systems with erlang/otp and elixir. Also I have experience with ruby and some other programming languages.

The syntax is slightly ruby-ish and quite easy to grasp. But it truly is stading on the shoulders of giants (Erlang / OTP) which makes it my go to language for most new projects.

I am happy to help. I have been working professionally in Elixir since January 2018 and have presented at Empex, ElixirDaze, and ElixirConf 2018.

I chanced upon Elixir back in early 2014 when we were looking out for a replacement stack that is as pleasant and productive to work in as Ruby, while giving us the reliability and fault-tolerance of Erlang, without having to add too much external dependencies to scale out our Ruby stack product.

I like how Elixir made it easy for anyone who wants to start programming getting started with it. Not only easy to learn but Elixir also gives you a robust way to build your application. You can learn a lot by learning Elixir.

Over 2 years ago, exercism was one of the first places where I actively learned about idiomatic approach to writing programs in Elixir. Now, after working with the language day to day, I'd like to give back to this great community.

I love Elixir for its productivity, elegant syntax, and functional nature. I've written it professionally and for fun. I hope to help people get excited about Elixir and learn some things myself, as well.

I first got into Elixir in 2015 and haven't looked back. My day job still largely centres around .NET but Elixir is the language I remain the most passionate and excited about.

I'm a remote developer based in Manchester. Ruby is my first love but increasingly I'm focussing on Elixir. The open source community means a great deal to me and I attend (and occasionally speak at) various technical conferences.

I've been a programmer for over 15 years. I've really gotten into functional programming in recent years, which is how I've come to love Elixir so much. Concurrency, fp, the Erlang VM - what's not to love?!

I found about elixir on exercism and thaught it were just another ruby, dropped it because I haven't had classes, read more about it, felt in love and cut off my relationship with ruby (nearly).

I'm a programmer working [mainly] with Elixir codebases. It's the first (and still the only) language I've learnt where everything Just Clicked. Beautiful underlying system, best-in-class tooling, best-in-class documentation.

I'm a backend developer currently working with Elixir (and Ruby at times!). I've always been a huge fan of functional programming and the elegant syntax, performance and knack for distributed systems has made it my favorite language.

I am a fullstack web developer with experience in Ruby, Elixir, and Javascript (and wrote Java in a previous life). I love Elixir due to it's syntax (especially pattern matching) and the excellent concurrency primitives that it receives via Erlang and OTP.

I enjoy making things work elegantly more than just making them work and I consider myself a very honest and straightforward person. I value empathy and rational thinking. I enjoy learning about and debating ethics and philosophy. What I lack in formal education in these fields I make up for in curiosity and open-mindedness. I'm currently looking to get started with competitive programming and using Exercism to practice. I hope to accelerate people's progression through the Elixir track, as there is currently a huge lack in mentors and I'm sure it's frustrating people to wait many days for their code to be reviewed (although it does prepare us well for the realities of business :P).

I've been working with mostly JavaScript professionally and do some personal projects in Elixir. I love the whole philosophy of Erlang/Elixir's `Let it crash`. I love all the abstactions it provides in OTP.

I mostly write Ruby on Rails professionally but for fun (and possibly profit one day) I dabble with Elixir, Nim, Arduino, and such. I’m really digging both Nim and Vim lately.
