Join us on September 4 at 6pm downtown to learn and share with others about Elixir! In addition to talks and discussion, we'll have pizza and raffle off a few excellent Elixir ebooks from Manning Publications including the forthcoming Phoenix In Action (https://www.manning.com/books/phoenix-in-action)!
Eric Oestrich will be previewing his upcoming ElixirConf talk "Going Multi-Node"
You have an application that works well on a single node, and you’ve heard that Erlang lets you scale out in a cluster. How do you go about doing that? We’ll walk through the steps I took to turn ExVenture (a multiplayer game server) into a distributed application. Starting with connecting nodes in development and production, to picking a cluster leader via the Raft protocol, and dealing with process groups to fan calls throughout the cluster. Finally we’ll see some of the hurdles I encountered when spanning multiple nodes.
