About this Episode

We talk about how designing applications with lower friction points is a valuable goal. LiveView plays a powerful role in that mission. Mark pitches why he thinks it's time to take another look at LiveView if you haven't lately. We talk over some of the business benefits, efficiencies gained and we address some common reasons given for "why it can't work." We also cover some remaining areas of improvement for LiveView. Then we talk about how moving your servers closer to users removes additional friction both for deployment and application design. Mark shares how the fly_postgres library works and how it enables people to build "normal" Phoenix applications using Postgres read-replicas across multiple regions. A fun discussion!
