Elixir - functional, concurrent, distributed programming for the rest of us

HSome functional languages require a lot of ceremony to do imperative things. Some have complex abstractions around concurrency or distribution. Some make handling failures painful.

Elixir is a flexible language that has many of the nice things functional programming provides, but also strives for being practical.

In this talk, we’ll see how Elixir and the Erlang virtual machine provide a set of tools that make it easier to work with concurrent, distributed applications.

We’ll see how failure handling and most of all recovery are built in the foundations of the language. We’ll see how this plays well with modern system architectures.
