This week starts with a discussion of Dungeons and Dragons and how great it is. Amos and Chris agree that roll20 is janky, but - like emacs - it’s lovably janky. The main discussion is about modeling problems using data structures instead of processes. The guys agree that manipulating data with pure functions is a good thing and that the tricky par…
 
Chris wants a new, costly keyboard and is willing to use ad hoc justifications to acquire it. Amos thinks its totally reasonable which means its either totally reasonable or totally not reasonable. The conversation turns to contracting and how contracting is different than working for a product company (beyond the obvious tax implications). Chris b…
 
This week starts with the customary COVID updates. Chris feels that the south is intellectually bankrupt, a claim no one is willing to refute. Seriously though, how hard is it to wear a mask? Mercifully, the conversation quickly shifts when Chris solicits feedback from the other hosts on his notion that business logic isn't a Real Thing :tm:. Anna …
 
Hey everyone. We actually recorded this episode back in April during the early stages of lockdown and right after my neighborhood was hit by a tornado. Unfortunately it got lost in the shuffle. We just found it while cleaning out our past recordings. There’s very little technical discussion and no discussion of Elixir. We spent most of the time jok…
 
This week, Chris is eating while recording. Luckily, the bar for this podcast has been set so low that no one will be surprised.

This week the hosts talk about quarantine. Because, what else would they be talking about. Amos and Chris somehow get on the subject of gardening. They both agree that fresh broccoli is amazing, but the cost is just too great. Everyone talk's about their anxieties and how the pandemic is affecting their lives. They share a few ways to escape from t…
 
Chris and Amos kick this week off with a discussion on the challenges of working from home. Chris thinks you loose a lot of fidelity when you move to remote work. Way more than anyone wants you to believe. Plus you need to get used kids yelling all the time. After a brief detour to discuss Ben Franklin's lesser known contributions to science, Amos …
 
Chris is doing a lot of blocking and tackling, which, it turns out, isn’t about pulleys. For the purposes of this discussion, blocking and tackling means adding telemetry events to elixir projects. Neither Amos or Chris want to be the ones who have to work out these details and would rather play with chatbots. The main topic this week is abstractio…

This week kicks off with a discussion of database indexes, Datalog, and Datomic. Amos wants to talk about error handling and when to report errors to an external service.

This week kicks off with a discussion about San Francisco's iconoclastic - but also incorrect - name for a specific coffee drink. Amos is, as they say, coming in hot and launches full bore into a discussion about the elixir forum’s moderation policies. Chris is primarily concerned about the angry letters they’re going to receive. The hosts discuss …

This week Amos is back from his yearly vision quest and Chris faces the problem of being interested in too many things at once. Amos discusses some experiences using Broadway and GenStage which gives Chris an excuse to bring up Little’s Law (as if he needed one). The main topic this week is observability. This topic is motivated by Amos’s latest bo…
 
4th wall break Hey everyone, we're still wrestling with audio gremlins. This week is based on the raw audio from our call so you'll hear some artifacts in there. I just wanted you to be aware in case you're sensitive to that kind of thing. We've solved this problem so going forward this shouldn't happen again. -Keathley Notes This week starts with …
