Does anyone have good quality versions of the confs that took place at Erlang Factory?

The versions I found are quite bad: Design by Contract

It’s hard to hear people speaking and the code and slides are unreadable.


#7

This any better? (Seems ok on my MBA speakers)

Making Sense of Elixir Directives

What are Directives?

  • Way to declare, import and reference other Modules
  • Elixir has four of them
  • But, but, why?

^ Think require in Ruby, import in Python

^ Elixir has four, all with slightly different purposes. Based on conversation I was having I find them confusing so I dug in a bit

^ Wrote up my gripes, presented them to Jose & Chris McCord. Summary is they agree it’s confusing, but have a hard time figuring out how to change things already set in motion. So, this is my effort to add some clarity to the situation.

I hesitate to favorite because of humility. Thanks for mentioning my old talk. I just finished José’s talk and it’s really great. I’m looking forward to using GenStage and GenBroker. That’s just what my company needs to introduce Elixir into production.
