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.

elixir, elm, rust, rustler, simplebet
Our guest today on the show is Dave Lucia, who is currently the Vice President of Engineering at SimpleBet. He is here as part of Elixir Internals series, to talk to us and all our listeners about Rustler and the contribution he made to the library! According to our guest, Rustler acts as a bridge between Rust and Elixir and allows users to employ the power of Rust within Elixir and a great example of this can be found in Dave's work at SimpleBet. He explains some of this application and the functionality and improvement it offers and the big difference the machine learning models make to this work.
