Elixir Moments

Yesterday we had the annual computer science project fair in which every graduating student present his/her thesis/dissertation project. As I am finishing my master this year, I presented mine which I have built in elixir. At the fair my 2nd year professor that taught functional and logical programming was there and I might have convinced her to spare second year students learning haskell and actually learn elixir in its place… We’ll see waht happens :slight_smile:


That’s awesome Carlo - let her know about the tweet above as well - that could well tip the balance :lol: :003:

I will, also I saw J-Tuck yesterday and told him he came up on the forum and that he was famous and he was very pleased :slight_smile:

Haha awesome - get him to join the forum - I am currently learning more about recursion too :lol:

You should consider coming to the fair next year if you can, I know the organiser and we could put together an elixir evangelists stand ahah :slight_smile:

Haha cool - I may even have an Elixir app under my belt by then :lol:

Might be a daft question, but what happens at these fairs?

We all have posters and demos of our apps and the whole department comes around, the professors mark the work and talk about the projects. Then the industry people come around to recruit, see the projects and talk about what they do. It’s a fun day actually :slight_smile:

Wow, that’s super high for Elixir Books! Spots 2, 3, 4, and 5!


I’m going to be needlessly geeky here but would you get any performance improvement by creating the nested tuples directly in Ecto’s select clause? Like this:

def get_available_internal_users do
    user_coll = from(u in User, 
                     select: {{u.name, u.role}, u.id},
                     where:  u.role != "Client")
    |> Repo.all
    |> Enum.into(%{})

What is macromates? And how do you install elixir via preferences in something? o.O
I tried googling for macromates elixir unsuccessfully.

Ah sorry, it’s TextMate 2 - a free text editor (the original textmate wasn’t free).

It’s probably the nicest looking editor out there, I just wish they had split windows/panes.

Hmm, where’s the linux download? That site seems quite limiting?

It’s an editor for Mac only (sorry!) and it looks like this :007:
