19:45 〜 20:15 Phoenix For Rails Developers Matthew Gillingham

Phoenix is a new web framework written in the Elixir programming language. Created by former Rails developers, including Rails Core Team member José Valim, it follows many conventions of a Rails development workflow while also taking advantage of the speed and concurrency provided by the Erlang/BEAM environment that hosts it. In this presentation, we will examine some of the similarities and differences between Phoenix and Rails to help Rails developers get up to speed on its capabilities.


Matthew Gillingham is full-stack engineer currently working as the CTO of Eventacular, a new startup developing apps for social networking at events, and as a part-time software engineer at Mediweb. He is also an organizer of the Tokyo iOS Meetup, an international community of people making apps in Apple’s iOS ecosystem. He has been living in Tokyo for nearly ten years.
