Podcast: ThinkingElixir 123 - Ash Framework Models Resources

Episode 123 of Thinking Elixir. Creator of the Ash Framework, Zach Daniel, shares how he feels Ecto is such a good tool, that people haven’t built a modeling layer above it and end up using Ecto directly. Ash models a resource above Ecto, making it more expressive while supporting LiveView, REST, and GraphQL interfaces on top. While cutting boilerplate, a major goal builds in escape hatches to keep from being boxed in. Ash Framework recently celebrated a 2.0 release, accompanied by the release of the Ash HQ website. A fun look into the achievements and philosophy that make the Ash Framework what it is today!
