Catalyst for my Elixir obsession

You guys have got me hooked on elixir. Listening to you both talk about the journey of learning new libraries, architectures, and styles has been a huge motivation for me to double down on going all in on Elixir. Hearing the humble side of two seasoned programmers talk through every day problems has allowed me to let my guard down and be comfortable in stepping into functional programming while looking like a complete idiot. I’ve been scared to try Elixir in fear of being less productive and not knowing what I’m doing. Huge thank you!

Straw and Washington Nail It!

Paul Straw and Sean Washington do a fantastic job of condensing topical web development issues into easy to understand chunks and then discussing said issues with a wit and depth of understanding that few other podcasts achieve. Their openness to the audience and focus on the topics are top notch. This is one of the first podcasts I recommend to developers I meet and new hires at our company.
