Resolving to make 2019 a more concurrent and fault-tolerant year? Join us for Indy Elixir at 6pm on January 8 downtown for our first meetup of 2019! 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 giving an introduction to websockets in Elixir. Websocket support via "channels" is a flagship feature of the Phoenix framework, powering live-updating web interfaces and beyond. But in building the Gossip chat network, Eric worked with websockets directly for interoperability with non-Phoenix and even non-Elixir apps. Whether you're interested in working more closely with websockets or understanding how Phoenix channels work under the hood, it should be a great talk!
And the schedule is open for another speaker: email [masked] if you'd be interested in sharing what you've been learning about or working on in Elixir or related technologies. It's low-pressure, but if you haven't spoken before or just have a question, that email goes to a human (me, Steve!) and I'd be more than happy to help.
