schedule Nov 17th 12:15 PM - 01:00 PM place Edinburgh people 6 Attending

As the world is moving to parallel computing and real time messaging, we need robust technologies which support these new paradigms. Elixir being built on top of the Erlang VM is a robust and functional programming language which gives us both.

In this talk we will look at the ease with which we can build a massive collaborative painting canvas which allows users to paint in collaboration with others in real time.

    Hi Khaja, Thanks for your proposal. 90 mins talk might be too long. Can you bring it down to 45 mins and probably skip some of the basic intro stuff? Also demos are a big hit. So if you can turn this more into a demo, that would be great. If you agree, please update your proposal.

      Hi Naresh,

      This will involve live coding of the demo. Not sure if that is what you meant by demo. I would prefer bringing it down to 60 minutes as I can cover it in better detail (if there is a lack of 90 minute slots). Let me know if there is a lack of 60 minute slots.

        Live coding is great, but not very efficient. So we would suggest having stuff ready and only doing live coding where its really necessary.

        Max we can do is 45 mins for talks. We don't have 60 mins slots.

          I have updated the proposal to a 45 minute presentation. I'll change my talk appropriately.

            Thanks. Can you please point me to a video from any of your past presentations? I've seen the screen-casts on your youtube channel, but I'm looking for an user group or a conference presentation video to understand your presentation style.

              Hi Naresh, I don't have any recorded presentations as I haven't given them at any big conferences before. The meetups that I present at usually don't record them either.

                Can you please record a 1 min trailer of your talk from your laptop or phone and share it? It is very important for the program committee to see your presentation style. Thanks.
