Belated ElixirConf 2016 Recap

Phoenix|Elixir| - November 30, 2016 //

This past September I took vacation time and paid out of pocket to drive to Orlando and attend ElixirConf with a few other programmers from Greenville who did the same thing. We weren't the only ones. Here is a belated recap from our combined notes and experiences.

Repeating History...on Purpose...with Elixir

Phoenix|Elixir| - November 29, 2016 //

A dive into the highlights of Elixir that make it the ideal platform for the web...and how all these questions were answered figured out 30 years ago. Presented to Upstate Elixir in Greenville, SC on Nov 16.

PostgreSQL functions with Elixir Ecto

PostgreSQL|Elixir|Phoenix| - July 27, 2016 //

Insanity with Elixir + Phoenix + PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL|Elixir|Phoenix| - July 6, 2016 //

I'm at the borderline of obsessed with Elixir and Phoenix lately. I've avoided writing about it so far because it feels a bit too good to be true. In an effort to test my own enthusiam, I decided to rebuild this site with them in the most ridiculous way possible just to try to test some limits. Because I already have an unhealthy obsession with PostgreSQL, we're getting crazy with it too.
