Join the team from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority as they explore their work with Elixir from three unique perspectives. It will start with a short history of the Customer Technology Department and expand into three distinct case studies of Elixir’s use at MBTA.
Case study 2: Skate, a web app for bus dispatchers: https://github.com/mbta/skate
Case study 3: RTR, the backend powering the subway predictions and signage
3 key takeaways from this webinar include:
Elixir is a great fit for many problems in public transit
Elixir and Phoenix help MBTA build performant, stable real-time apps while keeping our application code relatively straightforward
It’s worth the learning curve for new engineers, even for those coming from backgrounds in Ruby/Python/C#
