ThinkingElixir 118 - Making Users Anonymous Upon Request

Episode 118 of Thinking Elixir. Honoring a user’s “right to be forgotten” is not only respectful, but it may be a legal requirement. Clément Quaresma joins us to share how their ecto_anon library helps us make a user anonymous. A naive approach at removing a user’s data may corrupt our own database! We dig into how this library works, the problems it solves, and how it might be used for even more than GDPR compliance.
