Microservices to a Monolith, Making a case with Elixir Phoenix

Increasing productivity, affordability, scalability, and even less coding (gasp!) are the goals for any web application. Add on top unpredictable server traffic, then a solution you might consider is going serverless and throwing in one of those nifty NoSQL database solutions. Easy enough, but at what cost? You can unintentionally suffer vendor lock-in, deal with cold starts, architect your application improperly, and miscalculate cost structure at scale. But there is an even better solution you might want to consider, Elixir. Elixir and Phoenix can help developers solve all these technical challenges, allowing you to focus on the end-user experience.

Check out out my tech at Elixir Conf 2022 talking about how I made the switch.
