This talk will discuss the backend implementation of the transaction and payment processing system for the Wingman mobile application. It will show how the requirements of high-demand mobile app interactions can be addressed via the creation of a RESTful API on top of a scalable server-based platform coded entirely in Erlang. It will conclude with a live demonstration where the operational backend will be published to Heroku's hosted service.
Hands-on workshop for developers with no prior experience in OTP and Elixir, which aims at building a simple client-server architecture using Elixir/OTP and real tools like telnet or curl.
The workshop has several steps, each one requiring a short introduction followed by a programming exercise for the audience. If one gets lost, but would like to continue to the next step, they can switch to the next git branch. All branches will be published on github.com.
At the end of the workshop attendees will have a fully functional Elixir TCP server that can be tested using telnet or curl.
Participants may want to install Erlang runtime and Elixir before attending the workshop so that they can implement exercise themselves.
