I’m pretty new to Elixir. I’ve read some books, done a Udemy course, done some exercism and hackerrank problems and started on a Phoenix app.
I was a happy camper, but following the Elixir buzz on this forum, Elixir Fountain and other places I started getting the feeling that the “1.2 way” of doing Phoenix apps was kinda frowned upon by some people.
So I stopped development on my Phoenix app and read a bit more about OTP, watched Chris presentation of Phoenix 1.3 a bunch of times, bought and started reading Lance’s new prag prog book and tried to apply those thoughts and ideas to my app.
Now i bassically feel like a poor noob that is getting told that
“You probably don’t need a database”
But I really can’t see how anything else but a live session kinda thing like a game or a chat could work without persisting data in a database.
Am I misunderstanding this totally? Are there any other poor noobs out there that are getting the same vibe?
