Tuesday, 31st October in London

This meetup was organised by Elixir London in October 2017

Overview

Are you interested in learning how to make an acceptable chat application with Elixir? Want to know more about CAP theorem? Don't miss this month's Elixir London!

All Chat Applications: Lesson 2

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.
