A big thanks to the folks who made it to our November meetup! If you couldn’t make it in person, you can find recordings of most of our events on our Youtube channel,

And thank you as always to our sponsors who made tonight possible. For the first time, all our attendees had already won books, so no raffle this time, but remember you can always use our group’s discount code—ug367—on for 36% off their books on Elixir and other topics.

After some discussion, we wrapped up the evening collaborating on an exercise: calculating the Nth prime number in the series. Check out our solution below: there’s room for improvement in both performance and elegance, so feedback welcome!

Our next event will be on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 We’re always looking for speakers—please reach out if you’re interested!

And if you just can’t wait until January to hang out and talk tech, you can still sign up for the IndyHackers Holiday Social on December 1: get your (free!) ticket here.
