Web Development With Elixir

22 May 2014,

About a month ago @jamiemhodge talked me into giving a talk about web developement with Elixir for the Copenhagen Ruby Brigade.

So this post contains the recorded talk and links to the code used in the talk.

The source from the talk can be found here:

The talk produced some additional talk on twitter afterwards. @gudmundur made a hello world example in Go.

All tests were performed using
