Joseph Yiasemides

Software engineer at Port Zero GmbH

While some of us come to Elixir from a different language, Joseph arrived to Go from the other direction, eager to understand the differences and similarities. He wanted to see what the respective communities were about and what motivates their language of choice. Following experience with both Elixir and Go in the banking sector, Joseph is currently working with Pharo at Port Zero GmbH.

Code Elixir LDN 2018
16 Aug 2018

Invariants are everything (ADVANCED)

Property-Based Testing may well make it into the Elixir standard library. If and when it does, are we ready to make the most of it? In this introductory talk, we will concentrate on how Property-Based Testing expresses intent, how to conceive of properties and how this discipline helps to write correct software.


Motivate, propel and justify Property-Based Testing to the audience.

Expressive power on the BEAM

Documentation, pattern matching, and OTP are big things in Elixir. What about the humble _module_? We’ll talk about how to exploit arguably simpler constructs, like the _module_, to their fullest extent in everyday alchemy!


Give the audience insight into how to become  highly proficient Elixir users.
