Logo ElixirWeekly by @elixirstatus Issue #248
This week in Elixir

Up and Running Nx
Sean explains what tensors are, how to operate on them, and how to implement basic linear regression using gradient descent, all from Elixir.

Announcing Livebook
José announces Livebook, which is basically the "Jupyter Notebook Idea" on steroids (and on the BEAM), written in Elixir & LiveView. There's also a great demo video!

Axon: Deep Learning in Elixir
What a week: Sean announced Axon, a High Level Deep Learning Library written in Elixir that leverages Nx.

PostgreSQL EXPLAIN ANALYZE for Web Developers
Pawel started this series about interpreting the output of SQL EXPLAIN ANALYZE , which might seem like dark magic at first.

Lumen - Statically Compiled Erlang for X86
Lars wrote this "Getting Started" on Lumen, which will basically let you compile Elixir for the browser.

That's it for this round, have a great day!

Questions & Answers

Can I submit things I made to be included in the next issue?

Yes! Simply post them to ElixirStatus and you can be sure that they land on my radar.

Is my email address safe with you?

Yes. I'd like to consider myself a trustworthy individual, but then who doesn't?

I am, however, an active member of the open-source Elixir community and the maintainer of Credo and ElixirStatus. I will NOT ruin my reputation by selling your data to a third party.

Why do you require me to confirm my email address?

I just believe that requiring double opt-in to subscribe to any email-based system is a win for both parties: You are safe from unintentionally subscribing and I can be confident that you actually own the email address and want to receive the newsletter I send you :)
