Greg Mefford
Build a Smart Camera with Nerves
Beginner, Intermediate

Course Description

In this course, we will build a Raspberry Pi Zero W-based video-streaming webcam that can scan barcodes on the camera itself and be configured using a GraphQL API.

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 unlikely that you’ll melt, damage, or ruin anything. ;)

You'll also get to take home the hardware and all the skills you'll need to customize it and use it for your own projects.

This class is an update to ElixirConf 2018 "Less-Pain Embedded Systems with Elixir and Nerves" training, and includes all the latest changes to the Nerves tooling and ecosystem.


Greg is a member of the Nerves core team and loves to help new people get involved in the Nerves community, whether by making the tools easier to use, writing documentation, answering questions, or giving presentations.
