Jump the Gap Between Junior and Senior
April 20, 2023

Peter Ullrich first came to Elixir four years ago, and he absolutely loves it. In fact, he says he wants to "use it for centuries to come." With its foundation on the BEAM—Erlang's virtual machine—Elixir sprung to life with features, stability, and concurrency capabilities that would be the envy of much more mature languages. And when coupled with the Phoenix web application framework and LiveView library for reactive features, Peter says it's easier than ever for junior devs to jump the gap to senior.

We recently sat down with Peter to discuss the origins of Elixir, Phoenix, and LiveView, the ubiquity and importance of tables in web development, the role that software architecture should play in even the smallest of projects, the different approaches to building reactive web components, and the future of the Elixir ecosystem itself. Peter's answers not only educated and entertained us, but they also inspired us to think about new ways of tackling today's toughest challenges on the path to production.
