ElixirConf US 2018 – A Deep Dive Into Hex – Todd Resudek (@supersimple)

Hex is one of the few tools that virtually every Elixir and Erlang developer relies on, yet many people never get past deps.get. Hex can do a lot more to make you more productive, and is taking steps to proactively prevent issues (like leftpad) from ever happening.

I want to take you on a journey through this incredible piece of software, including some interesting features, the security measures taking place behind the scenes, and other interesting nuances that live deep in the source code.

My favorite thing from this talk was mix hex.docs. Another great time saver is mix hex.outdated, but I was already familiar with that one.
