ElixirConf 2017 was a great opportunity to get together, enjoy each other’s company, and celebrate what we’ve accomplished in the past year. In particular, Nerves has grown significantly in both maturity and popularity since the previous ElixirConf.
Check out our collection of the Nerves/embedded-related presentations here: http://embedded-elixir.com/post/2017-09-11-embedded-talks-elixirconf/
New on Elixir School - a lesson on benchmarking in Elixir with Benchee! Learn just how easy it is to get real answers on how fast your functions are.
I started a new project, and I’m open sourcing it today. It’s called AlloyCI, and it is a Continuous Integration, Deployment, and Delivery coordinator, written in Elixir, that takes advantage of the GitLab CI Runner, and its capabilities as executor, to prepare and run your pipelines.
I wrote up a blog post describing how I used CircleCI 2.0’s new Docker image support and caching features to speed up CI builds for a Phoenix app.
Hopefully this helps others out there who are also trying to migrate to the new 2.0 version with their Elixir / Phoenix applications!
During the process of migrating a Rails app to Phoenix, I needed to create a library that encompassed its paging, sorting and scoping requirements. From it, came Query. Although still in its infancy, hopefully someone can find it useful.
I’d say thinking scope of variable always help programmers to write good code. Form my experience, I feel that is beneficial.
In this time, I’ve tried to search relationship between macro and context which is identical to scope in different languages
A complete how to for creating Elixir Releases with Distillery. Including some tips for Phoenix, Ecto, and umbrella applications.
A simple way to automatically set the semantic version of your Elixir app - goodcode
When I first started learning Elixir, one of the first things I learned is how to get into the command line interface via IEx. Here are the things I wish I knew then that I know now. http://echobind.com/blog/2017-08-31-tips-and-tricks-for-iex/
After spending some time migrating a Phoenix application from 1.2 to 1.3, including adding some contexts, Devon talks about the issues with testing and decoupling that he ran into, and includes some ideas for improvement.
EventBus library getting more stable and getting very close v1.0. Give it a try to have delicious pub/sub experience on your library or project. For more event driven approaches without any dependency and really fast event passing using ETS concurrent read/writes.
Warning: I am delightedly using it on my own libraries that require
event driven approaches. It might be addicting after sending a few notifications!
I gathered links as I watched talks from ElixirConf 2017.
I wrote a blog post in response to a question about convention around using lenses vs. pattern matching. Ultimately I think the two approaches serve different, complementary purposes.
Keep writing non-async code, but have the great benefits of async code. “async with” abstracts the asynchronous part and hides it away from the developer.
Any feedback or help is more than welcome!
I started writing this article with an approach of presenting the benefits of the Agile Methodology For Startups. But while researching about Agile I learnt that there are several myths about agile. Startups, small businesses and even the entrepreneurs are misunderstanding the term “AGILE”.
Check out this Article: Spoiler Alert!! Agile is not a methodology
You’ve heard about Docker, you’ve heard about Releases — but what exactly are they? Should you use them? Can they work together? This article explores the basics of both technologies and the benefits from combining them:
Have you explored sample code of Metaprogramming Elixir? I’ve got curious how ExUnits return all assertion result. Based on sample code, I’ve implemented it.
Here’s what I came up with. https://blog.m346e.info/articles/how_to_deal_with_assertion_in_test_macro_of_sample_exunits_one_by_one/
