While this blog was off-line for a couple months, I picked up a new gig. I’m editing an Elixir blog, ElixirDose.com. Created by Riza Fahmi, the site is a weekly tutorial on some aspect of Elixir coding. They’re usually short and focused, until I step in and start writing something for the site. Then, all bets are off. Here’s a list of the articles I’ve contributed in addition to my normal editing duties:
- Elixir ListUtil — Rewriting a Perl module in Elixir.
- Elixir Deck — Writing code to generate a deck of cards. This is the first in a series.
- Elixir Lists and Values — Remember your context!
- Shuffling the Deck — How many times do you need to shuffle a virtual deck to make it random?
- The Erlang Calendar — Use Erlang’s calendar code inside your Elixir code.
I do plan on more. I recently finished changing the code of that last project to make it run in multiple processes. I’m exciting to have gotten that code to run, but now I need to figure out how to explain it in a tutorial. Easier said than done…
