Building a webserver in Elixir

10th July 2017 in London at CodeNode

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from LRUG July Meetup

To a Ruby developer Elixir can seam like one of an overwhelming selection of trendy new languages. Elixir's lightweight processes mark it as unusual among these new languages, and give it a unique set of strengths. This talk explores the virtues of Elixir processes and demonstrates how to work with them. Finally we will take a deeper dive into a real world example; constructing a capable webserver.

Building a webserver in Elixir

Peter Saxton

Currently building rich web applications at my company Workshop 14. Previously started a PhD developing components for quantum computers. Left because the real world has a much faster feedback loop. Enjoys working with Ruby, Elixir and JavaScript. p.s. also erlang, Typescript, Python, Haskell, Ocaml, Kotlin, labview, D and scala. Will take any opportunity to get immersed in the Great Outdoors.
