Talk: Elixir & Phoenix: a gentle intro
Compared to PHP, Elixir is a new kid on the block, but it has some
unique properties that make it well suited for web applications. In
this talk, Arjan Scherpenisse shows Phoenix, the web framework written
in Elixir, and how it can be used to create realtime collaborative web
applications. Finally, he shows how easy it is to have PHP and Elixir
interoperate.
