About this Episode

A challenge for many people learning Elixir is the change in the mental model. Coming from OOP to Functional changes how we reason about our applications and the old way doesn't always map over cleanly. Also, Elixir is capable of doing a lot more than other languages and frameworks can and this means learning how to build a “normal” application may change. We talk with Steve Bussey about his new book “From Ruby to Elixir” that aims to help people bridge that gap. While the title says “Ruby”, we discuss how many of the concepts apply to people coming from most OOP languages. We talk about different libraries to recommend to people coming from a traditional Rails stack and more!
