Brandon Blaylock

Brandon started coding over 15 years ago. After taking a short break to teach college, he found his way back to software development. He spends most of his time on the front-end writing JavaScript, but enjoys working on the server as well. Brandon believes that writing for DailyDrip is a great way to combine two things he cares about a great deal: software and education.

What our customers are saying!

Daily Drip has easily been one of the most helpful resources on my journey to better understand Elixir and the Phoenix web framework.
Taylor Dolezal Software Architect

With any language there are so many details to learn. What functions are built-in? How should I structure my code? What tools are available for improving my workflow? It’s rare to find one source that can answer so many of these questions, but DailyDrip does this and more for Elixir.
