Deploying and Upgrading with Zero Downtime in Elixir

One of the amazing things about Elixir (and Erlang) is that you can upgrade software without any downtime or user interruption. I will show how to build a release to deploy an Elixir application and then how to change configuration and roll new upgrades with AppUps.

I will also show some of the common faults in doing live updates that users should look out for.
