Elm and Phoenix bring functional programming, simplicity, speed, and maintainability to web development. In this talk you'll learn to use Elm to create a reactive UI and Phoenix to build a real-time backend to power that app, and you'll see why forgetting everything you know can be good for you.
In this talk, we'll explore how these languages work, how we use them together, and how we architect a real-time application. We'll discuss the pros and cons, and you'll see how to get started on your own projects.
