I was supposed to give this talk at ElixirConf.Eu, but sadly fell ill. These are the slides (still titled alpha-1) that I used to give it Elixir Berlin which was met with a great reception. Which is also why I was so looking forward to give it again and have it recorded… Anyhow, if you saw the talk and want to go through the slides again or you were looking forward to the slides – here they are.
Elixir is great, so clearly we’ll all rewrite our applications in Elixir. Mostly, you can’t and shouldn’t do that. This presentation will show you another path. You’ll see how at Liefery, we started with small steps instead of rewriting everything. This allowed us to reap the benefits earlier and get comfortable before getting deeper into it. We’ll examine in detail the tactics we used to create two Elixir apps for new requirements, and how we integrated them with our existing Rails code base.
Join us on our tale of adopting Elixir and Phoenix and see what we learned, what we loved, and what bumps we hit along the road
