The Groxio's Nerves module is moving right along, too. In Chapter 2, we shift to building software in layers. In 2018, Bruce Tate and James Gray II turned the Elixir world on its head with the book Designing Elixir Systems with OTP. With this Programmer Passport module, Groxio works with the Nerves core team to explore building Nerves applications using the same layering system. We add in the wrinkle of adapters and configuration so each program can run three ways: in tests, in development mode, and on the target embedded hardware. Join us at Grox.io!
