elixir, lumen, rust
Paul Schoenfelder and Hans Elias Josephsen from DockYard have been working on Lumen, and in this episode, we discuss how this project is incorporated with WebAssembly, a binary instruction format that ultimately allows Elixir to be run in the browser and preserve the semantics of the language. We talk specifics - the data flow and process of writing Elixir, the compiler, interpreter, and run-time functions involved, Rust as the programming language of choice, and when users can expect Lumen to be released.

Welcome back to show everyone and today in our exploration of Elixir libraries we are talking to Paul Schoenfelder! He is here to unpack Distillery, his own creation from the world of Elixir and tell us about how it works. We also discuss how Paul made the transition from bigger corporations into the startup world, his early experiences of different coding languages and the initial steps he took in writing Distillery. Paul is very honest about the unclear future of the library and he shares his hopes for it for the short term as well as clarifying its key concepts and functions. He gives great advice and directions for learning more about the resource and how you can help him and his projects out if you use them. For all this and then some, be sure to join us today for the show!
