Recap: January 9, 2018 Meetup

Thanks to everyone who came out to kick off 2018 with Elixir! If you couldn’t make it, you can find recordings of past meetups on our Youtube channel,

A big thank-you to our sponsors who made tonight possible. And congrats to Jake and Josh, winners of Manning Publications’ excellent Elixir books Elixir In Action and The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook. Check out Manning’s new Elixir book in development, Phoenix in Action.

Steve Grossi gave the evening’s talk about “context” modules, a code organization pattern recently introduced in Phoenix 1.3. Contexts are simple to use and bring a number of benefits, but require thinking about your code in a slightly different way.

Our next event in the new year will be on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 We’re looking for speakers—please let me know if you’re interested!
