ThinkingElixir 097 - Avro and Elixir with Dave Lucia

In episode 97 of Thinking Elixir, Dave Lucia released v2.0 of AvroEx, an Elixir library for working with Avro protocols and schemas. To understand Avro, we need an overview of the whole Kafka-centric flow! He gives us a taste of the Enterprise soup of JVM tools used for populating data lakes, all for the business benefit of data analysis and machine learning. We may work on Elixir systems that are tasked with hooking into this other Enterprise-y world and getting an overview of the pieces and awareness of the tools available can really help out! Dave also shares his goal of creating a new Markdown parser for Elixir and updates us on the next chapter of his professional journey.
