Show Notes

In this episode the panel talks to Robert Ellen and his experience with using macros in Elixir to get rid of some repetitive boilerplate code. They discuss common pitfalls when first diving into macros and resources which help to avoid these mistakes.

Robert shares some of the finer details of the challenges they encountered when trying to build these macros and the panel gives their own personal verdict on the age old elixir question: to macro or not to macro.

Finally the group briefly touches on some event sourcing topics - as the system Robert refers to was an event-sourced one.
