This Week in Elixir and Erlang #8

Another week, another set of wonderful news and articles from the world of Elixir and Erlang! Also, time for another shameless plug from me. I am on the hunt for new personal stories from the community for my Elixir Community Voices section. If you are an individual or a small team investing in Elixir / Erlang, I'd love to hear and tell your story. Feel free to drop me a short message.

As always, please, don't forget to fill out the short survey I started two weeks ago. A few people showed willingness for a newsletter, so one might appear in the near future.
