After a number of years working for the UK Government in various roles (project manager, requirements analyst, commercial advisor, etc) Tim switched careers to be a software engineer and have never looked back. He has mainly worked as a backend/data engineer with Scala but switched to being a full-stack engineer with Elixir more recently and has been loving it.
Struggling with slow Elixir compile times? Do you change just a single file and re-run your test, but it compiles tens of files and takes ages? This interactive talk will go through a number of examples to help you understand which files get recompiled and why. After the talk, you’ll be able to better understand compile-time dependencies in your own codebase and follow some common practices to reduce your compile-time dependencies.
