About this Episode

This week we dive into Amos’s frustrations with emacs. Chris talks about the nature of optimizers and how addictive micro-optimizing can be. There's a lot of bird trailing before the main topic kicks off around 18:25.

The main topic this week is Private Modules. Chris doesn’t think his opinion matters but Amos wants to talk about it anyway. Amos doesn’t know why we need this so Chris tries to provide some context. This eventually leads to a conversation on warnings and how they get surfaced in Elixir. Chris maintains that he’s ambivalent and Amos wants to think about it more. At the end of the show Chris provides some pretty great tips for getting over stage fright before a talk.
