ElixirConf 2017 - Working with legacy databases in Ecto - @geo

Often when starting an Elixir or Phoenix project that is data-backed, there is an existing database that you need to interact with. There are plenty of tutorials about getting started with Ecto in a green project, but how do you take a legacy database and get it working in your new application? We’ll explore normal situations all the way to crazy ones like weird foreign keys and even dealing with multiple databases simultaneously!

Audience: Beginner-Intermediate

All talks are available in the Elixir Conf 2017 Talks List or via the #elixirconf2017 tag

I haven’t yet had this need, but I thought there were some good tips in here.
