Intro BEAM up with Erlang and Elixir

This talk will take you through the 2 popular functional programming languages on the BEAM: Erlang and Elixir. What are they and what are their superpowers? What are they used for around us? As well as: How to start and learn them best? I’m sure some of the applications of Erlang and Elixir will surprise you.

Phuong Van (Văn Mai Phương)

Born and grew up in Vietnam, today I’m a developer and consultant at Erlang Solutions in Stockholm, Sweden. I fell in love with Erlang during my days in University and was fortunate enough to be able to work with it ever since. Using Erlang and later Elixir, I have been working hands-on with multiple clients: from a large-scale, legacy telecom product, to a user database service using the hottest and latest Phoenix LiveView.


Intro to Quick Guide to build a realtime page with Phoenix Liveview

If you want to build a rich, realtime user experiences server-rendered HTML application without complicated JS framework, Phoenix Liveview could be your answer.

Liveview will help to detect changes of data in components to re-render pages for us.

With mix command, it would be easier to create any components with default values that we want to add.

Presently, I develop Erlang/Elixir/NodeJS as backend site and AngularJS/Angular as Frontend site. I invesigated Phoenix Liveview in few months ago when trying to find a solution to fix issue of Live Board perfomance (Client Render HTML). It seemed work quicker but there are many other things that we need to consider before replacing by LiveView.

But it is very execiting, fun and impressed how LiveView work.
In this talk, we will walk-through of Phoenix Live View by building a simple page.
