Elixir Carnival07 Feb 2016
Right now there is a yearly celebration taking place where I live called “Fasching” or simply “Carnival”. People dress up as all kinds of persons, like pirates, tussis, sailors or ladybug couple with an age difference. I know, Germans, right? ;-)
In a way this coming week is also going to be my personal “Elixir Carnival” as I plan to dress up to look like a serious member of the Open Source community, release a bunch of software and even give a talk about it in the end.
I would like to share this now, because I owe all of this to a very supportive and welcoming community of fellow Alchemists, but there will hardly be time to write an appropriate blog post next week.
So, here we go:
- Monday The @elixirstatus Twitter account should pass the 1,000 follower mark around this date. The steady growth of this community makes me really happy.
- Tuesday Credo will see its
v0.3.0release around Tuesday, introducing new checks, UI improvements and the
@lintattribute to its analysis (preliminary CHANGELOG here). As with ElixirStatus, I can’t describe how glad I am that this project is so well received.
- Thursday I am really excited to give my first Elixir talk at ElixirRuhr on Thursday. It will be titled “Good Tooling educates” and I will upload the slides to SpeakerDeck after the event!
- Friday And finally HexFaktor - an upcoming service to monitor your projects’ Hex deps - is scheduled to start in private beta at the end of the week. My gut tells me this will be in private beta for a couple of weeks to ensure everything runs smoothly. You can register for the beta on hexfaktor.org.
Since there are things like day job emergencies and family life to account for, some of these might happen a day later, but the above represents the overall plan for the week.
Let me finish with the original intent of this post: Saying Thank you! to everyone who has been along for the ride. I could not imagine more fulfilling side projects and both the Elixir and Ruby communities have been so supportive over the last 2 years. It really means something to me.
