A Big Elixir Refactoring — Devon Estes (opens in a new tab) "Refactoring in Elixir is wonderful! It might be slightly more verbose than in some other languages, but each step in the refactoring is simple and explicit. Error messages are helpful, and there wasn't a single difficult step. In my eyes, more simple things is preferable to fewer complex things, and this refactoring confirmed my existing beliefs about one of the key benefits of Elixir: changing existing code is very easy."
