The Perfect Margarita

This is my "go to" margarita because of the ease of preparation and the simplicity of ingredients.

TL;DR

1oz orange liqueur, 2oz tequila, 3oz limeade, 1/2 lime, shaken with ice.

Code Review

What should we look for when doing code review? How should we receive code reviews from others?

thoughbot's Code Review guide is a great starting point. It articulates principles for the relational side of code review. This is especially relevant for us in a remote environment. How we give and receive feedback is as important as the feedback itself.

Things To Look For In Code Review

The following is a very incomplete list of questions to ask yourself during code review. The items here are meant to be starting points for a conversation with the code's author. Always assume the best intentions.

I highly suspect that the RSpec core team all use black backgrounds in their terminals because sometimes the colors aren’t so nice on my white terminal

I certainly use a black background. I'm not sure about the other RSpec core folks. Regardless, if there are some color changes we can make that would make output look good on a larger variety of backgrounds, we'll certainly consider that (do you have some suggested changes?). In the meantime, the colors are configurable, so you can change the colors to fit your preferences on your machine. First, create a file at

Introducing Phoenix: Concurrent
View x.md

An excerpt from Programming Phoenix by Chris McCord, Bruce Tate, and José Valim


You won’t find a "PhoenixDelayedJob" or "ElixirResque", those complex packages that exist only to spin off reliable processes as a separate web task.

You don’t need one. Don’t get us wrong. In Ruby, those packages are well-conceived and a critical part of any well-crafted solution. In Elixir, those frameworks turn into primitives. The Elixir programming model makes reasoning about concurrent systems almost as easy as reasoning about single threaded ones. When you have two database fetches, you won’t have to artificially batch them together with a stored procedure or a complex query. You can just let them work at the same time, like this:

company_task  = Task.async(fn -> find_company(cid) end)
