In August 2015, we made the switch from Ruby development to Elixir. Our team focuses on internal applications(ranging from a directory to data warehousing). This talk reflects the past year- over the projects, team development, and the architecture of moving from a Ruby-based ecosystem, to using Elixir almost exclusively.
Gabriella is a full time, full stack Elixir developer based in Portland, Oregon. She builds applications that aid and abet the business process, with a focus on external service integration. Off (and sometimes on) the clock, she experiments with natural language processing, especially vector space semantics. Her current labor of love is a computational model of metaphor understanding.
