Introducing Juvet: building bots in Elixir

There is another massive shift happening with how we interact with companies through software. Chat is the next generation of the user interface. Elixir is the perfect language and ecosystem for building bots and for conversational interfaces. In this session, we will see how we can build scalable, realtime web applications (or “bots”) using a new library Juvet and the Slack API. We will see what a good bot architecture looks like and how we can integrate with existing artificial intelligence services to make our bots smarter.


  • Realize that Elixir is the perfect language for building bots with the help of evidence 
  • Get familiar with Juvet, it’s architecture, and how it can help to build bots
  • Get excited about building bots by extending their existing services


Any developers of applications where bots can help them extend their reach.
