In the context of ever-increasing expectations, combined with the environment of ever-growing number of technologies and frameworks, it is hard not to fall into the trap of building for the sake of building. Teams spend precious man-months setting up custom instances of Wordpress, Magento, .NET MVC, React, you name it. Doesn’t it sometimes feel that we’re spending increasingly more time building the same things (CMS, CRUD, E-Com) and less time building something that actually matters?
This talk will explore fresh “new” world of Serverless and the surrounding ecosystem. And in exploring this, we would try to identify better ways of serving ever-increasing business needs without spending exponentially more time solving already solved problems.
You might not need a server, CI pipeline, CMS, E-commerce or general framework. Because if someone else solves that for you, you will have all the time in the world to do something that deeply matters for your stakeholders.
There are many commonly accepted truths in modern software development. Most of them are born from years of hitting hundreds of walls with thousands of heads. Some good examples of such axioms are:
This is not a training for beginner developers, nor is it a certification course for experienced Beam/Erlang/OTP/Elixir engineers. This a one-day roller-coaster ride of exploring exciting and interesting toys Erlang ecosystem provides. We would do a very shallow dive over many aspects of Elixir, but would rarely dig deep below the surface. The purpose of this day is to get you excited about Elixir and OTP, not to make you an expert in them.
This workshop, aimed at experienced non-Erlang/Elixir engineers, is designed to give you an introductory ride across the Elixir ecosystem and provide you with tools to get started with it, coupled with the knowledge of when such a move would be appropriate.
