Very short stream where we will be slowly step-by-step refactor our Ruby on Rails application to Phoenix (Elixir). Hopefully we’ll get to know the basics of Elixir. This is a Twitch livestream from (every saturday afternoon): This video contains: – Elixir basics – Phoenix basics – Ruby on Rails to Phoenix – Phoenix getting started […]
Here are the slides to go along with the video. Elixir is a powerful programming language that makes it possible to build fast, scalable, and fault-tolerant applications, with an elegant syntax that has made Elixir especially popular among Ruby developers who want to explore functional programming. This workshop will introduce you to Elixir and prepare […]
Members of the Elixir community often receive the question: “why should we use Elixir?” The answer to this nuanced question remains elusive, and this talk argues that the answer is not primarily technical. This talk argues that answering this question, as a community, will define the success or failure of the language. This talk presents […]
Visit our website “Functional programming is about making the complex parts of your system explicit.” Elixir is a programming language built on top of the Erlang virtual machine. Elixir allows metaprogramming, polymorphism, and a web framework called Phoenix that has drawn positive comparisons to Ruby on Rails. Jose Valim is today’s guest. He built Elixir […]

Elixir Umbrella applications allow you to break down complex systems into smaller sub components. But are these applications a good fit for microservices or do they end up being a more complex monolith? Learn more about them in this talk. After an introduction to Umbrella applications, Georgina showed us an example project to demonstrate common […]
With the release of Elixir 1.5.0-rc0 and OTP 20, it’s time to see just how much faster it is compared to Elixir 1.4 running on OTP 18. The results are very exciting as we measure the performance of two highly used features in Elixir: pattern matching on maps and ETS tables. Exploring Elixir code repository:
Object Oriented Thinking with Elixir and OTP by Ryan Findley Processes in Erlang / Elixir resemble objects in many ways. Some even argue that Erlang processes and the Actor Model are a purer form of object-orientation. The Elixir community has a large contingent of Rubyists that have extended many of the core values (and joys) […]
RailsConf 2017: Rails to Phoenix: How Elixir can level-you-up in Rails by Christian Koch Elixir has rapidly developed into a mature language with an ever-growing library of packages that excels at running web apps. And because both Elixir and Phoenix were developed by Ruby / Rails programmers, the ease with which you can learn Elixir […]
Today I did a screencast of writing a very basic URL shortener in Elixir. I got asked to do this in Rails (not a Rails developer) at an interview. I decided to do it again in a real language when I got home. It didn’t get me the job but it made me feel better. […]
