Rise of The Phoenix - Building an Elixir Web Framework

ElixirConf 2014


Phoenix is an Elixir Web Framework targeting full-featured, fault tolerant applications with realtime functionality. Together, we’ll take a guided tour through the framework, exploring its foundation, goals, and lessons learned. Along the way, well see how macros are used to generate the Routing DSL, and how we can take advantage of Elixir’s concurrent nature with an expressive websocket layer. Attendees will discover how to apply macros effectively and see examples of how it easy it is to build realtime web applications.
