Announcement of Functional Web focused 49th


Great hype starts around functional languages and how they fit in the web. In the modern world, needs have changed. Hundreds of thousand connections are not something rare anymore. Needs for languages and tools changed as well.
We would like to present the two, very modern languages – Elixir and Elm, that benefit each other in Backend and Frontend respectively.
And two experienced individuals will share their knowledge how they are using these technologies in production to serve millions of users a month.

Come to Functional Web focused 49th and be on the edge of new technologies for the Web.
