All Chat Applications
Elixir is a powerful tool. In just 15 minutes you can have an acceptable chat application. Here endeth the blog post, but wait you have more questions.
How do you deploy your application? Is Docker necessary, or even useful? What about service discovery, secrets, load balancing and other cloud flavoured issues.
Let's take that chat application and make it scalable, fault-tolerant and available. Using concrete examples I will provide solutions to all these questions and maybe even more.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
30 minute talk with slides followed by some demonstrations and questions
Provide guidance on working with Elixir applications in today's larger technology ecosystem. Introduce tools and processes that attendees can work with immediately. Highlight best practices that are different when working with Elixir compared to other languages.
Anyone who has discovered a joy for Elixir but so far been unable to use it in real projects.
Prerequisites for Attendees
Attendees should have a basic grasp of Elixir's key features and be comfortable looking at a few code snippets
I have also presented a live coding session where I walk through creating the chat application discussed in this talk. Slides and video are available

schedule 5 years agoSold Out!
"Poka yoke” (po-kah yo-kay) is a term from Japanese manufacturing that means "mistake proofing". It is a powerful concept (equally powerful in software) in which the design of a system shapes usage so that human error is prevented or corrected before it can cause real harm. In this session we will explore how and why FP maps so well onto the poka yoke concept. We will discuss the merits of mistake proofing over diligence, and rethink our approaches to craft and quality. You will leave with a new lens to evaluate languages, tools, and your own code. Examples in Elixir, Elm, F#, and Idris.
