Chapter 4Elixir Basics

  • Five value types

  • Two system types

  • Four collection types

  • Naming, operators, etc.

In this chapter we’ll look at the types that are baked into Elixir, along with a few other things you need to know to get started. This chapter is deliberately terse—you’re a programmer and you know what an integer is, so I’m not going to insult you. Instead, I try to cover the Elixir-specific stuff you need to know.
