Backed by the proven real-time capabilities of Elixir, Phoenix’s LiveView opens up a new world of possibilities for soft real-time web applications. Whether you need to manage the connections thousands of concurrent visitors in a chat application or simply push real-time updates of constantly changing information to a single user, LiveView makes it trivial with minimal JavaScript (sometimes none at all).

In this live-coding presentation, we’ll convert a typical controller in a MVC application into a LiveView controller. Along the way, we’ll discover some of the major benefits that LiveView provides and you’ll see how easy it is to implement in your own applications.
