CQRS and Event Sourcing are patterns which have their origin in OOP environments, meant to achieve higher scalability, availability and maintainability. However they "borrow" a lot if ideas from the functional paradigm, theoretically making Elixir a good fit to develop a CQRS & ES system. In this talk we'll go through the basics of CQRS & ES, touch on some use cases & definitely avoid cases, explore how we could use Elixir to build a system upon these patterns and conclude if/what makes Elixir a good fit.
