I wish we did more! Some languages make it natural, with others you're going against the grain.

The prisoner's dilemma makes "defect" the best option in this hypothetical ecosystem. First embrace, then extend, and lastly extinguish xmpp. Also: spam.

I get the feeling that some developers were so preoccupied with whether or not they *could* that they didn't stop to think if they *should*. Running AWS API commands via Slack terrifies me on many levels.

Great article, but I think the comparison to Python is a bit strained. I think of Erlang as related in spirit to the lisps of the 80's - introspection, code reloading, optional compilation, long-running debuggable systems, etc. I'd wager would agree.

Just wrote my blog post about Makefiles. They are language agnostic, all-purpose, incredible things that will fix your developer workflow.

yes indeed it would! Our next post will (hopefully) be about smart constructors -- by initializing structs via a single entry-point you never have to use default values and maintain the benefits of dialyzer.

I agree wholeheartedly. I'd rather have random helpers `defp`'d a couple of times in the modules that they're used in, then have a false abstraction like 'Core' or 'Helpers'. Duplication is better than the wrong abstraction.

Programiści z Krakowa, zapraszam na spotkanie, na którym opowiem dlaczego w BluzeZones żyje się zdrowiej i dłużej, dlaczego niektórzy mówią, że siedzenie to nowe palenie oraz co zrobić żeby przetrwać w tym siedzącym świecie.

Howdy! Love that tooling tweet. How many of us does it take to push back the encroaching compleximagedddon?

Modern software tooling is amazing. I can go from zero to working thing that I don't understand at all and have zero chance of debugging in a timely fashion quicker than you can say "thank god I don't have to support this thing".
