DailyDrip is rebooting ElixirSips by building a production Phoenix-based Forum engine - Firestorm - and we're running a Kickstarter right now to help make it more awesome. In addition, we'll be producing a month of free daily content to take someone through the basics of Elixir, OTP, Ecto, and Phoenix as a thank you to all of our subscribers and backers.

You are very good person! Great person! You have just created you first (or second, or third, etc.) package in Elixir language and published it to the Hex. You are nice enough to follow some conventions. At least this one.

A discussion on why benchmark rated Elixir very poorly on performance.
