Our Mission

Philly Elixir helps local developers learn and master Elixir and other BEAM languages through social events and community. All skill levels are welcome.

Chat & Social Links


Our main meeting is held once a month, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. The meeting starts at 7pm with a quick review of the group status and industry news. Later we do attendee introductions and presentations. These presentations can be shorter, 10 minute show and tell demos or longer formalized talks. The meeting last around 2 hours.

Due to COVID, our events are online for the foreseeable future.

In the past we’ve also ran weekly book clubs and may do so again in the future. If you would like to see a new book club or other event kickoff, speak up and let us know.

Group Leadership

The current head organizer of Philly Elixir is Mike Zornek. Feel free to contact Mike with any feedback or concerns.

We also would like to recognize and thank previous group organizers, Mike Nicholaides and Brian McElaney, for their dedication and work promoting Elixir in Philadelphia!
