    Thanks for the proposal, Jayaram.

    In our experience, the participants don't come prepared with the required software installed and a lot of time is spent setting things up. Hence trying to do a hands-on exercise in 90 mins is not sufficient time. Also its safe to assume all the participants understand FP basics. So my recommendation is to convert this to a 45 mins demo focusing on Elm Architecture using the notification example.

    If you agree, please update your proposal.

    Case Study

    For programmers who have been using locks for synchronizing threads to solve all concurrency problems, embracing message passing and creating concurrent data flows is an enlightening experience. This talk is a case study of a real world concurrency problem where the developer started with a slow non-thread-safe solution and refactored it step by step into a fast yet simple concurrent solution making use of Elixir's concurrent computation library called Flow.
