Implementing UDP protocols in Elixir

I've always believed that the best way of learning a language is doing low level stuff with it. It will show you how well the language is thought through, and will help you understand some inner workings. Let alone the cool factor of having to say you implemented a random protocol. In this demo/talk I'm going to show you how I've implemented the NTP (network time protocol) using Elixir. I'll also talk about reading RFCs, how I got into a fight with an LLM, and much more.
