This week in Elixir

Solution to Processes Challenge 1: Control one Process with Another
The challenge from last time was to create a module with two spawnable processes. One process is a counter and the second is a controller that spawns, starts it and terminates the counter.

Performing Bulk Updates Using Ecto and Elixir
Performing bulk updates with Ecto and Elixir can be a pain. Adam compares three ways that you can do them.

A Proposal: Elixir-Style Modules in JavaScript
Organizing our Elixir code into modules is great, with related structs and functions all in one place. Why not do that in JavaScript too?

Elixir Cowboy Websocket Handler
Eric wanted to have a websocket connection for non-Phoenix connections in his side project Gossip.

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 :)
