Look inside

Revised and updated for Elixir 1.7, Elixir in Action, Second Edition teaches you how to apply Elixir to practical problems associated with scalability, fault tolerance, and high availability. Along the way, you'll develop an appreciation for, and considerable skill in, a functional and concurrent style of programming.

about the technology

When you’re building mission-critical software, fault tolerance matters. The Elixir programming language delivers fast, reliable applications, whether you’re building a large-scale distributed system, a set of backend services, or a simple web app. And Elixir’s elegant syntax and functional programming mindset make your software easy to write, read, and maintain.

about the book

Elixir in Action, Second Edition teaches you how to build production-quality distributed applications using the Elixir programming language. Author Saša Juric introduces this powerful language using examples that highlight the benefits of Elixir’s functional and concurrent programming. You’ll discover how the OTP framework can radically reduce tedious low-level coding tasks. You’ll also explore practical approaches to concurrency as you learn to distribute a production system over multiple machines.
