Today I learned that defimpl has a `at-for`-module attribute; so if you need to call a function that is on the module that implements the defstruct you are defimpl'ing, you can just call `at-for.function_name(…)`.
Previously I just aliased the module into my defimpl; but this is easier.
Discoverability of module attributes in #elixir is not always on my side.

I haven't written more than 3 lines of #Elixir in my life but decided to take a shot at making an NIF today. So far I understand how to build it, but why can't I load it ? The tutorial I'm following must not be up-to-date...
If anyone who knows some #Elixir has the patience to help me, I'd love that.
I picked up my guitar tonight. First time since, oh, about January. The change in temperature and humidity have not been kind to the tuning. But damn, #Elixir strings are amazing! A minute of tuning and they are right back in form!
Muscle memory is a fabulous thing, some chords and progressions just come right back. Mind memory however is another thing entirely. I used to know some stuff but it feels like it's a reboot...
It makes it possible to use a custom language server in Panic's Nova editor 🚀

🔮 Context maintainability & guidelines in Elixir & Phoenix
"Instead of thinking about the Phoenix app as a set of unrelated data resources, Phoenix Context suggests grouping them in "clusters". The reasoning behind forming a given group should not be random. The best-case scenario is when the cluster consists of resources that together form a specific business domain within the application."

"Internally, pogo builds a consistent hash ring consisting of all participating nodes, calculates the search key by hashing the child process’ spec and determines which node in the ring “owns” the key. The local supervisor running on that node will then manage the process.
As a natural consequence of this approach, load will be spread over the cluster. "

I have seen multiple takes about #elixir not having drama like Rust.
That is a bad take and it invites drama by taunting a universe full of people.
Anyway, there has been drama in and around Elixir. It seems to be mostly chill at the moment. Great.
Hope Rust lands there too. But they are riding a larger and more complex beast.

I love #Elixir because we're just chill, the only drama is around type checking.
If you have something to say, then we have something nicer to say.
serião... se vc é #DevWeb e pelo menos não tá de olho no que tá rolando com #Elixir , #Phoenix e #LiveView , vc tem uma vida triste

The day has finally come. I'm now ready to give back my CS degree. Not only did I have to look up how to generate prime numbers, but I also had to look up how to check whether a number is a prime number. 🤷
Several of my old Math profs just felt a sudden itch at the back of their neck and have no idea why.

Another book finished: "Learn Functional Programming with Elixir". This was a very nice second Elixir book. I especially appreciated a chapter on "Designing your Elixir application", where you write a small dungeon crawler while learning all the "more than one file application" concepts.
I think it would have also made an excellent first Elixir book.
Just listened to the latest Thinking Elixir podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/thinking-elixir-podcast/id1516100616?i=1000614127719 where they talked with @peregrine about how #elixir and #rust work great together and I couldn’t agree more!
Never miss a chance to listen to the wisdom of @peregrine

🤔 How Much Memory Do You Need to Run 1 Million Concurrent Tasks?

I spent a big chunk of yesterday debugging Elixir due to what turned out to be a module not existing (or at least, I don't think it exists) but the compiler never warned or erred for it.
Nothing dynamic or fancy, I just had:
`MyAppWeb.Layout` vs `MyAppWeb.Layouts`
The former doesn't exist, but the latter does.
I would expect a compiler error, but I'm wondering if I am misunderstanding something?
eta: @cevado figured it out -- I was in a `quote` block!
He might seem skeptical. I'll win him over.
Isaac of #elixir fame.
I also saw quite a few benchmarks and comparison sheets between Elixir and other things.
Isn’t it ironic that Mastodon, which is based on Ruby/Rails, ”famous” for not scaling very well is also the host of ”mega-instances” whereas Pleroma/Akkoma/*oma’s are based on Elixir, famous for scaling incredibly well, is mostly used for small/single-user instances?
Yeah, I understand those terms can be discussed ad infinitum, and that there is good/bad architecture etc. But still. Ironic.

#introduction Hi I'm David (he/him), and I've been enjoying this network for a little while now, and slowly getting the hang of it. I'm married and a dad. We have two boys, 5 and 2. I'm a #physicist into #software and #machinelearning. I work at a early stage company, Spheryx, developing new ways to do #particlecharacterization. Recently I've been interested in #unschooling, #ecology, #permaculture, #connection, #economics, #opensource, #foss, #selfdirectededucation, #elixir, and, #puns. 😀 🦕 🌳
My ElixirConf EU talk is up and to save you a ton of time I will point you all at the best part which starts here: https://youtu.be/K51fj1JGQEY?t=1579
This is me trying to advance slides using machine learning. Worrying results.
Weird thing for today: Elixir's strings, charlists and "chars"/codepoints.
Char lists are simply lists of integers. So comparing the head of that list against, say, 'A' will not return a hit. You have to compare it against 65. The only saving grace here is that you can get the code point with the ?A syntax. I don't think I ever took this long to figure out how to compare individual chars in a list. 🧐

After 4 years on the board of the #erlef foundation volunteering to help various things in both the #erlang and #elixir communities (and 1 year before then in the IEUG to bootstrap the EEF), I'm finally stepping down and leaving my position to @Amos -- Long live the Amos King!
(I'll still be around the foundation's build & packaging working group and reviewing stuff for #otel for the observability group—no I'm not fully out of the picture)
I wrote up my conference experience at the delightful ElixirConf EU 2023 in Lisbon.
Thanks to everyone who I talked to. It was a blast.
Hope you enjoy.
Good LiveView talk by Chris to wrap up the conference. I'm very keen to use a bunch of this stuff :)
