- Managing GenServer Processes
- Date and Time in Elixir
Talk 1: Elixir Registry by Michael Kompanets
This talk will briefly introduce GenServer, describe how to build a simple process registration and management tool from scratch and then how to use Elixir Registry. If there will be time we will go over how Registry could be used for other things like PubSub
About the Speaker:
Michael Kompanets - Michael has been working in web development for most of his career. He discovered elixir a few years ago and as soon as he grasped some basic OTP concepts he thought it would be valuable to tell people about it through screencasts.
Talk 2: Date and Time in Elixir by Lau Taarnskov
A quick primer on civil time and time zones and how it relates to the sun. We will go through the date and time types in the Elixir standard library and how to chose the right one. How representing data well can improve code. Elixir 1.8 has a new behaviour that makes it possible to do time zone calculations directly via the Elixir standard library with fewer dependencies. Elixir 1.9 and 1.10 have some more changes regarding date and time we will also look at.
About the Speaker:
Lau Taarnskov - Lau has been involved with web development and e-commerce for decades. He started contributing to Elixir open source in 2014 and created the Calendar and Tzdata libraries. When it comes to the subject of date, time and time zones, besides talking about it and writing software for it he also writes about it on his blog at http://www.creativedeletion.com/
