Idioms for building distributed fault-tolerant applications with Elixir

  • Aug 19, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Joint Meetup with DigitalOcean. Presentation by José Valim, creator of Elixir.

Please RSVP at (for a consolidated count).

This talk will introduce developers to Elixir and the underlying Erlang VM and show how they introduce a completely new vocabulary which shapes how developers design and build concurrent, distributed and fault-tolerant applications. The end of the talk will focus on Elixir and include some live coding.

José Valim (@josevalim) is the creator of the Elixir programming language and member of the Rails Core Team. He is also the lead-developer of Plataformatec, a consultancy firm based in Brazil, and an active member of the Open Source community.

      Not AFAIK at the moment. See my response to Brian's comment.

    It's a shame this conflicts with Papers We Love. I second the question of recording it. I'd be happy to lend a camera if someone wants to be responsible for it.

      Scheduling was tough. I'd say comment on recording on the DigitalOcean event page also.
