ecto, elixir, erlang, jason
Today on the show we are joined by Michal Muskala, who is currently a freelance software engineer and he is here to talk to us about his work on the Ecto and jason libraries. With Ecto we continue our journey into Elixir and Michal explain how he became involved in the project and the work he did on it. He explains a little of its inner workings, issues and what excited him about it initially. We then turn to jason, a widely popular library that Michal created for parsing JSON. Michal unpacks its particulars, differentiating for us between the driver and adapter and the lessons he learned working on them. The last bit of our conversation is spent talking about open source and Michal's commitment to its philosophy. We discuss making time to work on projects, buy in from employers and and why getting involved can be scary yet is so important! For all this and more, join us for this great episode!
