Logo ElixirWeekly by @elixirstatus Issue #264
This week in Elixir

A Gentle Introduction to Machine Learning for Developers
Benjamin blogged about learning the basics and getting started with Nx and Axon from first principles.

What If ... CobolToElixir
Mike draws parallels between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Elixir community as he asks: “What if we could transpile COBOL into Elixir?”

EFLFE: Elixir Flavoured Lisp Flavoured Erlang
Mariano on how a literal joke turned into an interesting project.

Why we Killed Elixir
Borislav writes about why his team ditched Elixir in favor of Go. In my opinion it is important for us as a community to have these discussions rather than avoid them (in this case, Elixir seems to have been a bad fit for the team IMHO).

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 :)
