Taking Off with Phoenix

Sonny Scroggin

Phoenix is an Elixir framework for building scalable web applications with realtime connectivity across all your devices.

You'll see the framework's foundations, core components, and how to use Phoenix to write powerful web services.

Talk objectives:

- Real-time interaction via WebSockets

Target audience:

This talk would appeal to anyone who has experience or is interested in building scalable HTTP applications and/or real-time WebSocket interactive web applications.
