This week in Elixir

Organising Ecto Schemas
Placing schemas inside contexts makes it difficult to distinguish between data and actions. Stephen tries to fix that.

Listen to Database Changes with Postgres Triggers and Elixir
When broadcasting database changes, we usually use Phoenix.PubSub. But what if that’s not available? Learn how to set up Postgres Triggers to send Notifications to your Elixir app if anything changes.

Catching (probably All) Email SPAM with a Really Tasty Honeypot

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 :)
