Om du inte hittar någon sida, schemahändelse eller nyhet på din kurswebb kan det bero på att du inte ser den kursomgången/gruppen inom kursen som innehållet tillhör.

Veta mer om din kurswebb

Din kurswebb är sidorna för en kurs du prenumererar på. Du väljer sedan vilka omgångar/grupper inom kursen du vill ha information från. Är du registrerad på en kursomgång sköts prenumeration och val av kursomgäng automatiskt åt dig. Vill du ändra något av detta gör du det under Mina inställningar.

När du är inloggad på din kurswebb ser du:
  • Kursöversikt, nyheter och schema med information som är filtrerat utifrån dina valda omgångar/grupper inom kursen
  • Allmänna sidor för hela kursen
  • Kurswikin som är sidor som alla, lärare och studenter, kan skapa och redigera
  • Sidor som hör till de omgångar/grupper inom kursen du valt eller som valts för dig

Welcome to Programming II

Although this course is given in both Swedish and English we will keep only one English version as the course web.


We will use Elixir as our language of choice in this course but the course is not only about learning Elixir - we use Elixir to explore functional and concurrent programming. You will need to learn programming in Elixir but focus is not on Elixir specifics. The things that we cover in the course is applicable to all functional programming languages. 

Course literature

We will use online tutorials and documentation and recommended readings instead of a course book. This material is to learn how to use Elixir as a programming language. If you rather want to have a book, you will find recommended literature below.

Online tutorials and documentation:



We provide all exercises and tutorials using GitBook.  Most of the content is now available but we will update it during the course.


We will also provide all course material on Github. This is so that you can have easy access to all material and also help in extending the material. If you don't know how to clone a git repository the TA:s will help you. Note - the material is not synchronized with the material in the GitBook. Everything you need should be in the GitBook but the Guthub repository could provide some additional information, source files etc.

Past years

If you want to see what previous years students have said about the course you will find the results from the questionnaires here:

One can summarize the comments in:

  • "start to program early"
  • "do the assignments"
  • "attend the seminars"

"It is absolutely essential that students taking this course have a good understanding of the concepts in the Algorithms and Data Structures course to have a chance of getting a few points on the exam, let alone passing the course."

"You should treat the exercises and seminars as mandatory so that you keep programming regularly throughout the course as I found this to be an effective way to study for the exam and learn the content."


Previous we have used Erlang in this course. We have however switched to Elixir since it has a more traditional syntax and some other improvements. Elixir is very similar to Erlang in its structure and runs on the same back-end machinery. If you learn Elixir you can easily switch to Erlang and vice verse.
