Brooklyn Zelenka on Functional Programming

Elixir Wizards

In today’s episode we have one of our favorite recurring guests, Brooklyn Zelenka, joining us once again! Brooklyn has been on the show in both the first and second seasons to speak about Elixir and functional programming. In those conversations, it came up that this topic is far from exhausted, and since Season 3's theme is working with Elixir, we thought it would be great to have Brooklyn on for a third time. Today, Brooklyn does not speak to Elixir specifically though, but on functional programming more broadly. Fission, her company which is working on developing next-generation hostless apps, actually uses Haskel, but Brooklyn has a ton of experience across the board. She gives us some great insights into what makes the functional versus OOP paradigm great and helps us to understand some of the inner workings of both worlds, talking about abstraction, application, data orientation, and more. Interestingly, Brooklyn does employ some imperative programming in her company through the use of Typescript, but uses a functional style to get around the context switch. We spend some time toward the end of the show digging deeper into macros, and Brooklyn helps to revise understandings of them as code which writes more code as well as clarifies the term 'homoiconic' as it relates to ASTs. Brooklyn covers a whole lot more today so hop on for a deep dive into functional programming with today's great guest. Key Points From This Episode: • Why Brooklyn uses FPE: it can be reused and reasoned about. • Two things that functions provide: abstraction and application. • Data orientation and hiding information: imperative vs functional paradigms. • Understanding imperative programming: it’s less structured and hard to reason about. • Challenges experienced imperative programmers face with functional programming. • Differences between Elixir, Erlang, Haskel, Elm, and Clojure. • Using Clojure: tradeoffs, distinctions, tooling, flexibility, and compatibility with Java. • The language Brooklyn could use if only one existed: Racket. • Bridging functional and imperative paradigms through disciplined use of style. • Segfaults in Haskell related to its compatibility with lib C. • How to use Musl instead of lib C by employing docker files. • Algebraic types and why static types aren’t hindrances in functional languages. • Preferences for tests or proofs and their role in finding types valuable. • Macros as compile-time functions that are difficult to debug. • A definition of a ‘homoiconic’: high-level syntax which represents the AST. • What makes C macros different from Lisp ones. • Architecture in Elixir and the need for a more user-friendly Haskell.

Brooklyn Zelenka on Witchcraft - Elixir Internals

Elixir Wizards

Hey everybody and welcome back to Season 2 of the podcast! This season we will be talking about Elixir internals, libraries and the inner workings of the language. In our first episode we are very happy to be joined by Brooklyn Zelenka to start off our journey on the subject with an exploration of her very own Witchcraft. In this episode we talk to Brooklyn about her history with Elixir, how she got started and what attracts her to it. Brooklyn explains the influence that open source philosophy has had on her career in developing and from there she gives a pretty comprehensive introduction to what Witchcraft is, expanding its key concepts. Although this is quite a high level discussion about Elixir and Witchcraft, we are confident that with Brooklyn's expert help even our most uninitiated listener can get some benefit from our conversation. We also talk about type systems, property-based checking and Dialyzer, so for all of this and more make sure to join us as we kick things off for Season 2! Key Points From This Episode: A quick introduction to Brooklyn, where she works and how she got started with Elixir. The influence of open source and library contributions on Brooklyn's development. Getting to grips with Witchcraft; defining monads and functors. Why some of these scary terms do not need to frighten you. A few little things that differentiate Witchcraft and some surprising elements. The convenient guarantees that Witchcraft provides around your data structure. Why there is no type system baked into Elixir; overheads, inputs and outputs. Property-based checking and compile times in Witchcraft. Merging of Elixir and Dialyzer; benefits and problems. Getting in touch with Brooklyn and getting involved with Witchcraft and Elixir. And much more!

Elixir Wizards

We talk with Brooklyn Zelenka from SPADE Co. about their current and past Elixir projects and how they are deployed. Brooklyn Zelenka - SPADE Co. Find Brooklyn elsewhere online: https://twitter.com/expede https://github.com/expede 1:08 - Brooklyn’s Background Brooklyn's background and experience with Elixir is deep. Huge open source contributor. Got started in Elixir just after Phoenix got to 1.0. 1:53 - Worked on several Elixir projects in production. 2:43 - Why she got into Elixir. Real Time More performant than Rails. Great documentation Industrial-grade 4:38 - When you wouldn't use Elixir. Easy to get stakeholder buy-in. Just point to WhatsApp. Elixir is made for 2019 CLI tools Repl-driven development TDD tools built in by default All the best practices we have today are built in. 7:14 - Where has Brooklyn hosted her apps? Heroku for POC's. AWS for production. Dockerized because "kubernetes is the new hotness" 9:40 - Do you do any clustering? Load balanced above. AWS load balancing is very standard. They're well understood and have a nice developer experience. 10:29 Are you able to get any zero downtime deploys? Zero downtime deploys. Awesome but impractical. Rolling deploys are easier and usually more appropriate. Some requirements make it valuable. Erlang error states. Exceptional. Allows you to build for the happy path. Don't worry about error handling all the time. Witchcraft and dark magic. Monads. Poke around the standard library. 12:50 - How does Elixir compare to Rails in terms of response times, and other aspects? 15:32 - What libraries do you use and what have you built? 22:41 - Any cool features of OTP you are using? 25:36 - One tip to developers new to Elixir Build up a peer-to-peer cli chat from scratch in one GenServer.

Panel: Charles Max Wood Mark Ericksen Josh Adams Eric Berry Special Guest: Brooklyn ZelenkaIn this episode of Elixir Mix, the panel talks to Brooklyn Zelenka who lives in Vancouver, Canada. Listen to the panel and the guest talk about various topics, such as: different Elixir libraries, Quark, Witchcraft, Exceptional, ConsenSys, Meetup, among others.Show Topics:1:33 – Let’s talk about Exceptional for that library?1:40 – Brooklyn: Sure, it helps with flow.3:33 – You are making Exceptional more accessible?3:35 – Brooklyn: Yes, more conceptual.3:49 – Panelist: What’s the adaptation like?4:09 – Brooklyn: People seem to like it.4:33 – Panelist: What were you doing before that?4:42 – Brooklyn: First language was JavaScript. There is a huge Ruby community. Tons of Ruby refugees looking for help.5:27 – There seems to be a large migration from Ruby to Elixir. Have you played with Ruby at all?5:40 – Brooklyn: Yes, I have used Ruby for a couple of years. There is such an interest in Elixir from the Ruby community. They are such different languages. The aesthetic is similar, and the way the languages are set-up is completely different.6:41 – Panelist: So not having three or four different alien methods? I have been developing Elixr for a while now, but Ruby doesn’t solve modern-day problems. The fact that you have been working with Elixir since 2014 is amazing.7:24 – Brooklyn: The first library I wrote was Quark. Then that led into Witchcraft.10:49 – Panelist adds in his comments.11:06 – Brooklyn: There are a lot of different things I would love to see in the libraries. At what point do we say that this is the default style in Elixir? My keynote was exactly about this at a conference this year. Elixir hits a nice spot in the program place. It’s very accessible. I’ve brought into these concepts because of Elixir.12:37 – Let’s talk Exceptions. Will it become apart of core?13:14 – Brooklyn: I wouldn’t mind that it would become apart of core.15:10 – Any other questions around Exceptional or Exception or other libraries?15:25 – Panelist: Let’s change topics.15:30 – Brooklyn has her own company now.15:52 – Panelist: Good job on Roberts Overload!16:00 – Panelist: Where does block chain and Elixir meet?16:08 – Brooklyn answers this question.17:16 – Brooklyn: Not all block chains are...19:02 – Brooklyn: Another good fit would be...19:33 – Panelist: My company is apart of ConsenSys.

We help companies and go to conferences. This is for zero experience with Elixir. Over the course of a couple of days to give people confidence production in Elixir. It won’t give you all of the knowledge, but it helps. This also gives people access to me, and my business partner, to use us for questions and so on.28:56 – You live in Vancouver. What is the Elixir community – through Meetup – what is the temperature like there for Elixir or Ruby, etc.? What are the trends looking like?29:31 – Brooklyn: Yes, check us out at Meetup.35:18 – Panelist: I think that is interesting on your opinions on GO with your background.35:35 – Brooklyn continues her ideas on this topic. It’s not to say that GO is the worse language ever, but from what I have seen that it’s a nice experience in Elixir that things work. All the libraries integrate nicely. There is a style and flavor that is friendly. You get the friendliness with all of this power. You can scale up very nicely from a single node.37:47 – Where can Elixir “should” go and could go?38:21 – Brooklyn answers this question and others.39:21 – Dialyxir / Elixir.41:27 – Dialyxir overall is pretty nice and it gets the job done with what Elixir needs it to do. Type system.42:09 – The pre-existing eco-system isn’t built for it. You don’t know if it’s safe to run? There is no way to know about this. The overhead for the programmer tends to be really high. Why don’t we add things like – adding property checks – to ensure that you know how this thing will behave when it run. Using some other techniques – not just in tests – but integrate it into the core workflow. This is really important44:22 – Advertisement!45:03 – Panelist chimes in.45:21 – Brooklyn: Have you seen Alpaca? I am sure it’s 1.0 now.
