We've teamed up with our friends at ElixirCasts to give you the chance to win a whole years worth of their Alchemist's Edition subscription (worth $228)! Not only that, we have one of these to give away every month until the end of 2024 - that's one Elixir Forum winner each month!

About the prize

ElixirCasts create screencasts to help you learn Elixir, Phoenix and OTP. They cover a range of topics such as user authentication, ETS, and Supervisors (and lots more!) aiming to help developers of all levels and backgrounds discover what makes Elixir such a great choice for programming the modern web... one episode at a time. They also now have a new new Phoenix LiveView course! Check them out today - and if you can't wait, use your forum discount to get 10% off their monthly subscriptions for life!

How to enter

Every month, we will pick a random 6-digit Lucky Number which is displayed on our competition page for all to see. To enter the competition, all you have to do is log in via your Elixir Forum account and receive your weekly entry which is a randomly-generated entry number.

You can obtain a new entry number each week. At the end of the month, if any of your numbers turns out to be closest to that month's Lucky Number, you win!
