This month’s main speaker will be Stephanie Vizzi from SmartLogic, giving us an intro to Ecto Multi’s. Ecto.Multi is a super useful built-in tool that strings together database changes that either all succeed or all fail as a single unit. They can be a bit hard to look at and understand initially, because of their compound nature. In this talk, we’ll go over what they are, how they are structured, when to use them, and dig into a few common examples to help you understand how to use them and how to parse them when you see them in the wild.
6:00 – 7:00 — Introductions, possible beginner track talk (TBD), main discussion (see speaker/topic above)
7:00 – 7:30 — Erlang/Elixir show and tell:
• Bring your project, show everyone what you’ve been up to
• Stuck on a problem, show the group
• Or just come out and share your experiences
7:30 – 8:00 — Socializing
Hope you can make it out!
