Form Follows Function: How Code Evolves through Iteration

Ben Marx
Lead Developer at Bleacher Report

Adopting a language or framework at an early age is always a gamble. This talk will show through iterative code samples and benchmarks how this gamble paid off handsomely for Bleacher Report.

Growing with Phoenix and Elixir helped Bleacher Report take advantage of all that Phoenix and Elixir have to offer as well as train all of our formerly Ruby and Rails developers to be Elixir and Phoenix developers. 

After years of object oriented development in PHP and Ruby, finally enjoying the benefits of programming in Elixir. Lead Developer at Bleacher Report leading the transition from Ruby and Rails to Elixir and Phoenix.
