I’m very interested in hearing about how you’re using Phoenix in production.
Anyone is welcome to share their story. That means anyone from a solo developer who just deployed their first side project with Phoenix to large companies running Phoenix for years while serving billions of page views a month.
The goal of hearing these stories would be to raise confidence that people are successfully using Phoenix in production. It would be really beneficial for others to know these details because we’re all on the same team here. We all want to build really nice web applications quickly and in a reliable way.
Currently there’s not too many blog posts or talks going into detail on this topic. A lot of companies say they are using Elixir but when it comes to serving customer facing traffic with Phoenix I have not found many examples or details.
So to help fix that problem, I just released a podcast / interview site at https://runninginproduction.com to talk about running a Phoenix driven app (or technically any app) in production.
The podcast episodes will be audio only (no video) but if you’re not comfortable doing an audio recording together, interviews can also be done over email on whatever schedule works best for you (it’ll be a low stress environment where you can take as much time as you want on answering).
If you’re interested in sharing your story, please fill out 1 of the 2 different Google forms below:
As for the site itself, there’s not too many interviews posted yet because the site went live less than 24 hours ago. I have not mentioned the site to anyone other than posting it in this thread. To be more useful for readers I figured I would wait until there’s a couple of interviews and podcast episodes before announcing it publicly.
Once there’s a few posts I’ll announce it to my existing audience. I’ve been running a technical blog for ~5 years on my personal site.
If you’re curious, the first interview on the new site covers how I run and host my blog. It’s to help serve as an example of what to expect in the text interviews. You can view that here: https://runninginproduction.com/interviews/001-100k-page-views-a-month-for-5-dollars-with-a-self-hosted-static-site
P.S., If you want to see these interviews, drop a reply here too, just to gauge interest. It will help convince larger companies that this is something more than 1 person wants to see happen.
