Claudio Ortolina

Head of Elixir @ Erlang Solutions

Always Available

Availability should be one of our major concerns when writing web applications, yet more often than not we ship code that is simply not resilient enough. Elixir and OTP provide powerful tools to improve resilience and increase availability: in this talk we’ll look at how we can leverage them to provide continuous service even when our database is down. The talk will be a walkthrough of a refactor of an Elixir application with a Phoenix frontend, powered by PostgreSQL.



Claudio works as Head of Elixir at Erlang Solutions Ltd. He’s a software engineer with more than 5 years of commercial experience in complex web applications and apis, with expertise in Elixir, Ruby, Elm and JavaScript. He previously worked at New Bamboo Web Development Ltd. (now part of Thoughtbot Inc.) in London, UK.
