Keep Calm and Use Nerves

Intended as a introduction to Nerves, the IoT platform for the BEAM, this talk is a journey through the land of library ecosystems, device drivers and pixel manipulators, in search for the holy grail: a stable and maintainable IoT device.

The Nerves project ( is a framework for building IoT devices with Elixir. In this talk I will explain how a Nerves project is structured and then move on to show and demonstrate one of the projects that I did with it, focussing on the development experience and the state of the Nerves ecosystem.
