During this workshop you will learn to design and create your first fully functional applications.
For those with some experience with these technologies who want to gain their fuller understanding.
If you already know other programming languages, you will discover the beauty of creating apps with other technologies.
About the Workshops Weekend

You can choose which workshop you want to attend: iOS, Android, RoR or Elixir.

Meet Our Mentors
He started his journey with Objective-C, currently continues it mostly in Swift. Big fan of BDD/TDD and AppCode. Loves tools which facilitate and automate the development process. Likes FIFA, gym, swimming and Apple products.
Loves discussions about tools, patterns and crazy solutions on both design and business levels.
iOS and MacOS App Developer
Software Engineer with several years of experience in web and mobile applications development. Loves clean architecture, readable code and cats.
Works in Kotlin, hates Java. He’s a really poor developer, so he has to test his code all the time. He also cares about automation and spreading knowledge.
He used to develop backend solutions, but mobile applications turned out to be the love from the first try. Fascinated about writing clean code and Agile methodologies. Speaker at GDG DevFest Poland and DroidCon Italy.
He’s as short as his functions and classes and also as concise as Kotlin. Has deep knowledge of every tool he uses. He knows why Chrome uses all your memory and why emulator crashes only when you need it.
Ruby on Rails
Two years ago he changed Excel tables for developing in Ruby and it was one of the best decisions in his life. Backend developer by choice, frontend developer out of necessity.
Ex Java developer who started his journey with Ruby at EL Passion. Lately became fascinated with functional approach, because of that got interested in React and Elixir. Decided to learn at least one language each year because you “gotta know ’em all”
Grzegorz is a Master of Mathematics. He fell in love with RoR shortly after getting to know Ruby. When solving challenging tasks is not a priority, he likes to watch NBA games.
Programmer with passion for web applications. Discovered Ruby shortly before graduation and used it for the final project. Started his first developer job after internship at EL Passion. Fan of pizza and “Matrix” movies. He likes to cycle and read a good book from time to time.
Karol’s love for computers started with a Commodore 64. 15 years later after a short affair with Java and C++, he discovered Ruby. Today he is a respected Ruby on Rails developer and a morning runner.
Started his journey as a Ruby developer at EL Passion workshops. Thinks that only new challenges won’t make your life monotonous, so he has chosen a developer career to get a possibility of continous self-development. Admirer of Elixir. Loves travelling. Senior FIFA Player.
Former Informatics & Econometrics student, fell in love with Ruby two years ago. Coffeeholic, enthusiast of movies, TV series and poor jokes.
Rails & Frontend Developer
Started his IT career at the first EL Passion workshop. Proud Full Stack developer. Programming polyglot, functional programming enthusiast, speaker at first Warsaw Elixir Meetup. Outspoken Vim user. Always with an abnormal approach to the problem.
Atendee of previous EL Passion workshops.
Starting as a web developer, EL Workshop was probably the best thing that could've happened to me. The knowledge, the people and the atmosphere made the workshop an amazing two days. I highly recommend you to apply and enjoy the experience.
Coming to the workshop with almost zero RoR knowledge, today I can say I learned a lot. It's still a fraction of EL Passion's senior developers' skills, but to me it's an invaluable experience.
I can't imagine a better way to access the programmers community in Warsaw. EL Passion's workshop for me was a great combination of code, smart creative people and pepperoni pizza. I learned a lot from my mentors!
