Use discord? Just like to read about people pushing technology past its limits, resetting those boundaries for everyone who comes after them? If so, read away below ..

What's also super nice is they have opensourced a number of the libraries they used to get there. Yes!

I actually like the fact that I am starting to get some dislikes on the Exploring Elixir youtube series. It's just one or so per video, and there are many more "likes", but this tells me that people are watching who are object. That's good. It's a response with meaning. Be liked, be hated, but don't be so bland nobody cares. :)

Already working on episode 3 for upload tomorrow, which will cover another new feature in Elixir 1.5 ... until then, here is last week's episode which looks at performance improvements in 1.5 with an Extras video (link at the end of it) detailing some of the feature highlights ..

Continuing in my fascination with Elixir, I uploaded the first video to the new Exploring Elixir channel on Youtube. Intend to do these ~weekly, and am making them with intermediate Elixir devs in mind. In the first episode, I do some live coding showing how to isolate business logic from long-running tasks that call into them (i.e. websockets that respond to client requests) for greater fault tolerance.

Interesting writeup over on reddit (shock! :) from a RoR dev on using Elixir+Phoenix. Their app is online as well, so you can play with it to see the results, and even better the code is up on github so it can be perused for fun and pleasure. I really appreciated their honest and fairly detailed experience from their journey, and generally agree with what they highlighted as both strengths and weaknesses of this relatively young platform. Worth a read :)

One of the fun things about being around during the front-edge of a technology's adoption curve is watching it mature and the ecosystem start to fill out around the core. It's a very organic process (and, yes, lots of wheel reinvention occurs) that is quite pleasant to experience. The momentum is exciting, the opportunity to re-imagine possibilities is rare.

Here's today's example from the realm of Elixir, where Dave Thomas releases a new project template generator for Elixir projects. The "bootstrapping" feature of gen_template_template is cute, and being able to base one template on another is handy.

Since he posted this, there have 2 more templates (gen_template_ecto_service and gen_template_escript) made available by the community on hex.

I've already submitted by first bug report, too, so it must be a real project now! ;)
