Summer's winding down and to close out the season we've got two great talks lined up. We'll spend some time getting more acquainted with GenServer and then see how we can leverage Elixir to build a personalized Alexa skill. Come on out, grab a slice a pizza, and hang out with other Elixirists!
Getting Started with GenServer
Speaker: David Santoso
There are a lot of things to like about writing Elixir code, but what about leveraging tools in the Erlang VM? In this talk we'll get an overview of GenServer and how you can get started with using it in your applications.
Phoenix + Alexa
Speaker: Kate Studwell
Have you ever wanted to build a skill for your personal assistant? Kate will walk us through the main components of Amazon Alexa skills, including building a skill as a web component using Phoenix.
Big thank you to Spreedly for hosting the meet up and providing pizza.
