Spawning processes in Elixir, a gentle introduction to concurrency

Along with pattern matching, one of the coolest things in Erlang and Elixir is their concurrency implementation based on Actor model. In this article I introduce concurrency and show how we can start making our code concurrent in Elixir, using processes.

Hey Process, there is a Message for you!

Messages are a fundamental part of concurrency in Erlang and Elixir. In this article I introduce how messaging between processes works. We play with simple examples to see how a process sends and receives messages.

Created an Elixir Orb for Circle CI, any feedback is appreciated. If you use CircleCI for your Elixir projects, it will be useful.

A thread here on the forum inspired me to tackle optimizing a string processing script in Elixir. Documented the steps I took, the performance difference and the tradeoffs.

It looks like your blog is currently down? Although maybe I’m just having issues with .dev domains.

@axelson It’s up here, what do you get when you nslookup blog.jola.dev? I get:

╰─➤  nslookup blog.jola.dev
Server:         127.0.1.1
Address:        127.0.1.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:

Working ok here too :023:

Nice one @jola - I love seeing forum inspired talks/blogs :003:

Looks like pow added a custom resolver for both .dev and .test. So a sudo rm /etc/resolver/dev fixed it.

Thanks @jola for a great article, I particularly liked that it touched on the context to help you decide if you want to make these tradeoffs for speed at the expense of clarity/simplicity. (And thanks for finally giving me the impetus to fix my systems .dev domain handling!)

This is more about the clever use of OpenSSH features than Elixir properly, but it is a problem that we faced and took some time to solve, so here it is. Any feedback is very welcome.
