DockYard To Launch Phoenix Phrenzy Contest

Phoenix Phrenzy logo

Phoenix LiveView is an exciting new way to build interactive, real-time web applications in Elixir, writing little or no custom JavaScript. To help demonstrate the capabilities of this cutting-edge technology, DockYard will launch PhoenixPhrenzy, a contest for developers to build demos with LiveView and show off their skills. Phoenix Phrenzy opens July 29.

As organizations increasingly rely on their digital properties to drive business, and as users expect more meaningful web experiences, developers must take on greater skill sets and learn a wider array of tools to build modern web applications.

LiveView, built on Phoenix’s websocket support, harnesses the Erlang VM’s ability to run millions of tiny, isolated, stateful processes. The framework simplifies development by keeping the view logic server-side, yet achieves stunningly fast updates and low latency.

What can you build with Phoenix? Show us your best development work and win the respect of your peers.
