Simplifying Systems with Elixir
Saša Jurić
Elixir is often described as a language which offers great support for massive concurrency. First-hand reports cite the ease of handling millions of connected users, sub-millisecond response times, and superb fault-tolerance. These are all great benefits, but we’re left wondering whether Elixir is useful only for large-scale systems, or can it bring some benefits in the simpler cases too? This talk aims to demonstrate that Elixir is also a great choice for building smaller systems. Using some real-life examples from my own experience, I’ll explain how using Elixir can help simplify the system architecture, and lead to a more homogeneous solution. The talk targets backend developers who are new to Elixir. After the talk, the audience will have a clearer idea about what makes Elixir attractive, and why they should consider using it to build their next backend system.
