Fireside Chat on LiveView Surface

Join Marlus Saraiva, the creator of Surface, alongside Timmo Verlaan and Bruce Tate for a discussion about Surface, the new LiveView Component library.

Surface is a server-side rendering component library built on top of LiveView. Surface brings static type checks to LiveComponents, while providing better ergonomics and a high-degree of composability. It is a powerful tool in the LiveView developer's toolkit for designing rich, interactive UIs that are easy to build, layer, and maintain.

Bruce Tate, co-author of Programming Phoenix LiveView, will moderate a discussion between Marlus Saraiva and Timmo Verlaan. We'll talk with Marlus about the problems Surface is designed to solve, what it's been like to build the library, where Surface is going next, and more. We'll also hear from Timmo Verlaan on his experience working with Surface, when and why he reaches for Surface, and what Surface has brought to LiveView development. We also want to hear from you, the audience. So come with all of your Surface questions and join us for this lively discussion.
