This Week in Elixir and Erlang #16
By Preslav Rachev • Issue #1 • View online
Hello and welcome to the first email issue of This Week in Elixir and Erlang!
For those looking at the number #16 above and wondering, TWEE has been running in a non-newsletter form throughout 2020. Due to popular demand, I decided to give emails a try. To keep things easy to manage, I will continue both on a bi-weekly schedule and see how things evolve.
This section will be my personal editorial space, reserved for sharing my thoughts, announcements, or shameless plugs. There is one right here. Last year, I started a series of interviews with individuals and small teams in and around the Elixir space and would love to continue doing so in 2021. If you are interested in getting your story told, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
If you have any feedback or suggestions, please, feel free to share your feedback (completely anonymously).
Let’s get started, shall we?

Good morning!

I will be on the @ThinkingElixir podcast this Friday to give a sneak peek on the Nx project. I hope soon everyone will learn *what* it is about.

If you want to see *how* and some actual code, then come to my @LambdaDays talk!

Just published the first version of an Elixir powered CI as a library. You can learn more at There's a lot of work ahead, but I think it's a solid start :-)
Hex v0.21 released with new self-hosting functionality, a `mix hex.sponsor` task to list all your dependencies that accept donations or sponsorship, and much more.

🥳Excited to announce Embedded Resources! They function similarly to Ecto's Embedded Schemas, but they can leverage resource functionality like validation, calculations, and even authorization. They can even be extended! Check out the guide for more:

There's still one more slot for our Phoenix LiveView class on January 27-29. It's likely to sell out so if you were thinking about signing up to use that new 2021 budget, now's the time.
