"Move seamlessly from learning the basics of Elixir to mastering the key concepts of OTP."
Roberto Infante, Devqf Ltd.
The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook gets you started programming applications with Elixir and OTP. You begin with a quick overview of the Elixir language syntax, along with just enough functional programming to use it effectively. Then, you'll dive straight into OTP and learn how it helps you build scalable, fault-tolerant and distributed applications through several fun examples.
Elixir is an elegant programming language that combines the expressiveness of Ruby with the concurrency and fault-tolerance of Erlang. It makes full use of Erlang's BEAM VM and OTP library, so you get two decades' worth of maturity and reliability right out of the gate. Elixir's support for functional programming makes it perfect for modern event-driven applications.
Made for programmers comfortable with a standard programming language like Ruby, Java, or Python. FP experience is helpful but not required.
- Covers Elixir 1.2 and 1.3
- Introduction to functional concurrency with actors
- Experience the awesome power of Erlang and OTP
Benjamin Tan Wei Hao is a software engineer at Pivotal Labs, Singapore. He is also an author, a speaker, and an early adopter of Elixir.
