Ryan Billingsley shared how Clustertruck uses Elixir to power their new Clustertruck for Teams Slack integration. He covered the architecture of a Slack integration, declaring business logic with the Opus library, and complications with Slack deprecating a core API.

Eric Oestrich delved into websockets, particularly how his Gossip game chat network and Grapevine player portal power cross-game communication across a network of games running on the ExVenture framework.
