ElixirConf 2017 - Managing Tables With Elixir and OTP - Robert Beene
We’ve all waited for a table at a restaurant - only knowing how much longer the wait would be by asking. By leveraging the power of OTP, we’ll design an application that exposes real-time status to both the staff and waiting customers. Genservers and supervisors that once seemed foreign will become clear with this real-world example. Elixir handles real-time application with ease and reliability using the core features of the language. You can too.
