Building a Real-Time App with PhoenixAug 23rd, 2018 – Sophie DeBenedetto
More and more, users are coming to expect real-time features from the web apps they use. Whether it's a chat, a live game, a shared document or a push notification, we as developers are finding ourselves needing to go beyond standard HTTP requests to support real-time functionality. Phoenix, the web framework for Elixir, has real-time capability out of the box. It's fast, highly concurrent (thanks to the Erlang VM), fault-tolerant and super friendly towards distributed systems.
A Gentle Introduction to GraphQL with Elixir and PhoenixJul 6th, 2018 – Brandon Richey
The project we're building is going to be an application that will store/retrieve Event Logs. You could use this for something like tracking requests you're making, or tracking audit events in a log, or...well, anything that would require storing some arbitrary events with types, messages, and payloads. Our tech stack: Elixir and Phoenix are absolutely fantastic for building extremely high performance, low maintenance systems, and GraphQL's ability to fetch huge sets of data in varied ways makes Elixir a particularly great symbiotic fit!
