Welcome to the second part of our special Elixir Wizards Dojo. A mashup made in partnership with ElixirConf Japan. In today’s episode, we talk to Nerves core team members Todd Resudek and Connor Rigby about all things Nerves. But first, Todd leads us into a delightful digression about his enjoyment of heavy metal music. From metal back to Nerves, Todd chats about how he uses Nerves to monitor his internet connection and to automatically restart his router when certain conditions are met. After talking about using Flutter and Dart to build GUIs, we ask Todd to share another of his Nerves projects; the future of sprinklers — the Drizzle 2000! We then explore Connor’s self-defined role in the Nerves team as the development head of networking libraries before discussing how easy it is to use Nerves if you are an Elixir user. Todd and Connor dive into their utopian visions for the future of Nerves and why no other IoT solutions can compete with the tooling that Nerves provides. We talk about FarmBot and the many features that its models have, including how they can pulverize weeds. This springboards the conversion into the increasing importance of IoT tech in the agriculture sector and how it’s likely to be the next billion-dollar industry. We round off the episode by giving our guests the space to plug themselves and they close with a request for listeners to Iron Maiden and Metallica’s first albums. A perfect compliment to the first installment of the Elixir Wizards Dojo, tune in to learn more about the Nerves Project.
