As developers, we spend a lot of our time inside the source code, so it could be argued that it is an important part of our working environment. To do our job efficiently we need our environment to be well organized. In development, this is the role of code design.
Let’s imagine a silly example where you were writing a software to manage your franchise of electronic stores. You wanted to find store locations that run out of both Sega Genesis consoles and VCR players (I know, I’m old.) Being a programming nerd and recently picked up on Elixir, you would want to write your own Ecto query to find those. How would you do this?
In the interview, we talk about their open-source involvement, the benefits of Elixir for their startup, and which libraries they have found to be useful for their project.
The article has two parts. In the first one, I review resources for beginner Elixir developers. Once you finish up with these, the second part is a collection of further suggestions to help you improve your skills.
This post is a “behind the scenes” look at the tech that makes up the X-Plane massive multiplayer (MMO) server. It’s only going to be of interest to programming nerds.
