Building CQRS/ES web applications in Elixir using Phoenix

Full slides for the talk I gave at Dev South Coast today.

  Elixir Phoenix CQRS/ES

Command Query Responsibility Segregation and event sourcing (CQRS/ES) has established itself within the .NET community thanks to advocates such as Greg Young and Udi Dahan.

I propose that functional languages, such as Elixir, are well suited and deserve your attention. Let me demonstrate why.

In this talk you will discover how to build applications following domain-driven design, using the CQRS/ES pattern with Elixir and Phoenix. I’ll take you through a real-world case study to demonstrate how these principles can be applied.

  • Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications. It leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems.
  • Phoenix is a productive web framework that does not compromise speed and maintainability.
