  • Elixir deployments on AWS – Mint Digital – Medium
    2017-02-17 medium.com

    Blog

    If you spend any time around the Elixir community, it won’t be long before you come across mention of the state of deployments. As things stand at the start of 2017, they are a little on the rough side: My biggest issue with Elixir is that it’s hard to set up a proper CI/Deployment pipeline. It CAN be done and I’ve done it but nothing “just works” like it does with Node. Try dockerizing a phoenix app or setting up a heroku instance to see what I mean. All of these things work but it ...

    Spelling CI / Sheldon You probably know the feeling... ...when you fix a very important issue in that "super cool" open-source project. You keep all your attention to those parts of the code where your changes could affect something, you run the tests until you can confirm: "It is fixed now, I am sure"; but then again, you run all the tests again up until, as the brave developer you are, you click the "open pull request" button. You are happy because you know the problem is fixed, everyone is ...

    What actually happens in an interpreter when it is evaluating your code? Presumably some very impressive voodoo understandable only to doctors of computer science. The kind of people who are fluent in C++ and can blast through the Euler Project in Haskell before their morning Weetabix. Right? Wrong. It’s actually relatively straightforward and an interpreter can be built by mere mortals such as you and I. Let’s explore some basic language interpreter concepts in Elixir, a nice friendly hi ...

  • Elixir: the new wave or an elegant niche? – Hacker Noon
    2017-02-14 hackernoon.com

    Blog

    Last year in a conversation with an employee @ Thoughbot, I asked what they are most excited about in the coming years. They answered with one word: Elixir. The story was compelling. Elixir is a language that seems to lack tradeoffs. Its Ruby-inspired syntax is easy on the eyes. It can do things with concurrency — mind boggling things to a Ruby dev like me— that open up a different approach to building web apps. All this new-age pretty code syntax and concurrency is built on top of the ...

  • POST — The Tech Behind Our Slackbot – Edenspiekermann
    2017-02-14 edenspiekermann.com

    Blog

    Elixir is a new programming language designed with concurrency in mind. It’s capable of processing multiple instructions in parallel, meaning we can take advantage of all cores on web server CPU. Instead of processing one instruction at a time, each core can process an instruction (in practice it's a little bit more complicated than this, you can find some in-depth information here if you're interested). Not only is Elixir a language that handles concurrency, it can also be distributed - me ...

    Blog Featured Videos



    This talk is dedicated to lessons we’ve learned while designing, developing, and deploying to production our very first Erlang project. Erlang and, even more importantly, its underlying virtual machine have challenged our methods of building systems in our primary language at stylefruits, Clojure. I’ll use our new Erlang-based project as a source of concrete examples and differences. Join me and discover how the rock-solid Erlang platform can affect the way you structure your systems. ...
