What next after Rails - an introduction to Phoenix
Help in understanding the trends in the web app development world, especially in the context of Elixir and Phoenix. A small introduction to the concepts of Phoenix and advantages that it has is going to be a major takeaway.
The talk aims at understanding the trends in the industry and what future applications might demand. Rails has been a trend for past couple of years and that is for a reason. But those reasons are changing now and the requirements are going to be tougher and the need of the hour is going to be concurrency and parallelism. This sets the stage for functional programming languages that are emerging which have most of these demands built into them as building block. Phoenix is a framework that is evloving into the space of web application frameworks and it is really a promising one. The talk will breifly walk through some of the salient features of Elixir.
