    June's Presentations

    Moxley Stratton - Organizing Code Around Side Effects. What are side effects, and why should we care? Learn why it's important to make side effects obvious and separate from logic and calculations.

    Brian Shirai - One of the things I've observed is a tension between Erlang/Elixir ideas about system resilience and the approach being taken by microservices. I've witnessed the struggle between ops teams striving for "immutable architecture" and Elixir devs wanting access to the running instance, even potentially want to use the hot code loading.

    • Michael Matyi, from Househappy > Will be presenting a project that uses Elixir and Rust NIFs (using the Rustler library) to allow low level audio processing with PortAudio. There's also a Phoenix application which provides an interface to the audio processing layer. The project is a simple experiment but touches on a number of concepts which might be interesting: NIFs in Elixir, Rust threads, Phoenix channels and Umbrella application design.
