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.

Audience: Beginner-Intermediate

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

I quite liked this talk. I think it pairs really well with the ElixirConf 2016 talk “Selling Food With Elixir by Chris Bell”

I especially liked how Robert went over Genservers and the concept of a “stash” to store state so it isn’t lost.
