Developing a custom hardware/software embedded system can seem like a daunting or even impossible task. With Elixir and Nerves, you can quickly get started with a Raspberry Pi-based project and walk away from this one-day session with your own WiFi-enabled, video-streaming webcam and all the skills you need to customize it.
This session is beginner-friendly. That includes those who are new to Nerves, new to Elixir, or even new to working with hardware. Some programming skills will be required, but working code will be provided along with the hardware, so you only need to make changes that you’re comfortable with. It’s very unlikely that you’ll melt, damage, or ruin anything. ;)
