    @scherrey never really got past the "playing around" stage with elixir/phoenix. i wrote a couple blog posts in late 2014/early 2015, but then i never got to use it productively and my interest petered out

    @citizen428 my interest in elixir plummeted recently when all my code generates tons of warnings (soon to be errors) in 1.4 because of the way they've reconciled resolution of nullary functions. Makes building DSLs, a real game changer, far more difficult.

    @scherrey Wasn't aware of this either, is it related to the lambda apply syntax? Always felt that was an unfortunate wart

    @pangaunn This is one of the most famous books, the text uses Scheme but it's very common to find examples as solutions from this book using other FP languages: https://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book.html
