This week we don’t have a guest, so it’s just Chris & Desmond. We kick things off discussing our opening music and how weird it is listening to yourself on a podcast. Desmond tells us about his exploration into webflow and his love (hate) for CSS. We dig into bits in the language that still trip us up, even now with our experience in the language. We dig into some Ecto: query syntax that trips us up, materialized views, application logic vs database logic and lots of other database goodies. Desmond tells us how Phoenix contexts trip him up and we go into some depth about how both of us structure contexts and code in our Phoenix applications. We tell you about ElixirTraining, which is our new venture to help teach more engineers the beauty of Elixir, as well as engineering leaders about why Elixir is a great fit for your organization. Oh, and sorry we said we’d answer some community questions and then never did.
