ElixirWeekly: The Elixir Community Newsletter, covering community news you easily miss, shared on ElixirStatus and the web, in one email every Thursday.
This week Elixir has been uninstalled from Amos’s laptop and Chris is reading books and writing C. Chris explains why he still chooses to write C and why most people don’t need to manually manage memory.
During the main topic Amos describes a problem he’s having with Tesla and Hackney. This leads to a discussion about how to build systems that can handle failure. Amos brings up Let It Crash and where it applies. Chris provides some insights into building stable systems and how supervisors influence design.
