Elm and Phoenix: Two FP Flavors That Taste Great Together



Josh Adams discusses the basics of creating apps in Elm with a Phoenix back-end, using real-world examples of how the two work together in Firestorm, an open-source forum engine.


Josh Adams created ElixirSips and now runs DailyDrip, where he produces daily continuing education content for Elixir, Elm, and more. He has been building software for money for over 16 years, having run a consultancy for 10 of those. He is convinced that helping software developers build software better is the best way he can make a large-scale, short-term impact on the world.

About the conference

The Erlang & Elixir Factory SF Bay Area 2017 conference took place between 23 - 24 March with training between 20 - 22 March and 27 - 30 March. The conference explored the programming themes of distribution, concurrency, multicore and functional, it went deep into frameworks, delved into case studies and looked at the right tools for the task at hand. The conference has been evolving over the past few years and our community has grown beyond Erlang to encompass a more diverse range of languages from the Erlang Ecosystem. Next year, in recognition of this, we will be re-branding the conference to Code BEAM SF 2018, still in San Francisco and still with top-notch talks and speakers from the BEAM community.
