Issue with intro to Mix and OTP tutorial

So, I just finished going through all the “Getting Started” and “Mix and OTP” guides on the elixir website. When i build and run the final project, im only able to create new buckets, but i cannot add, or see whats in them. The error i keep coming across is here:

15:11:28.548 [error] Task #PID<0.633.0> started from #PID<0.635.0> terminating

Im not sure if this is related to my code since I cloned other completed versions and experienced the same error. I installed elixir using windows subsystem for linux. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Did you start the console with a name, like indicated in the guide here? You should start your console instances with something like: iex --sname foo to follow that part of the project.

If all is fine, and the VM started with a name, the console prompt should show something like:

I see now. I was thinking the VM’s would start dynamically. I’ll need to re-read that section. Thank you. Got it up and running now
