Ecto without SQL

The recent Ecto split got some people confused, but the truth is Ecto was never just a "db library" for Elixir. This talk is about what Ecto can be used for besides database interactions. It will showcase real examples of it being used in different ways, to parse, validate and give a proper structure to complex input/output data, working with message queues and so on.

Objectives

Showcase how Ecto can be used without an SQL database. Showcase how Ecto can be extended to saving and querying other data sources. Explain how the Ecto split works.

Audience

Software developers that are experienced with Elixir or other languages and would like to have a better understand of what Ecto can be used for.
