Porting a Big Rails App to Elixir in Two Months

Miguel Michelson


As a way of learning Elixir, I’ve ported the 3-year rails development of my open-source platform. This talk will present the steps on how to do it. And what aspects to consider when doing it.

Talk objectives:

  • Present some aspects and tips when entering the elixir world when coming from rails land. I will show how nice Elixir is and how rails devs could overcome their fears to let ActiveRecord and their awesome gems go.

Target audience:

  • Those rails devs who are not sure to migrate or enter Elixir
  • Elixir starters
