DevCon: Build fast, highly-available applications with Elixer, Phoenix, and Learn REST APIs

Version 1

    With the release of our REST APIs for Learn, Blackboard gives you a way to build applications for Learn outside of Learn's Java ecosystem. The Phoenix web application framework, the Elixir language and the Erlang VM, are emerging technologies that are being used to build blindingly fast, high-availability, low-latency web applications. In this talk we'll share with you a LearnRestClient module for Elixir and demonstrate how it can be used with the Phoenix framework to begin building the equivalent of the popular Building Block™, the York Data Source Key Tool.
