Technical complexity is now a major cost of doing business and the Elixir/Erlang ecosystems offer appropriate tools to efficiently manage complexity. In its realisation we have built a product entirely based on this technology, and now have stories to share.
In this talk, Evadne will attempt to cover:
1. Their economic case for adopting this particular ecosystem, from both a development velocity point of view and a maintenance/cost point of view.
2. Problems they have faced and solutions they have come up with, both on an organisational level and a technical level, in realising the project.
3. Some ideas for technical leaders wishing to adopt Elixir for their next greenfield or brownfield project.
