Look inside

Phoenix is a modern web framework built for the Elixir programming language. Elegant, fault-tolerant, and performant, Phoenix is as easy to use as Rails and as rock-solid as Elixir's Erlang-based foundation. Phoenix in Action builds on your existing web dev skills, teaching you the unique benefits of Phoenix along with just enough Elixir to get the job done.

about the technology

Modern web applications need to be efficient to develop, lightning fast, and unfailingly reliable. Phoenix, a web framework for the Elixir programming language, delivers on all counts. Elegant and intuitive, Phoenix radically simplifies the dev process. Built for concurrency, Phoenix channels make short work of developing real-time applications. And as for reliability, Phoenix apps run on the battle-tested Erlang VM, so they’re rock solid!

about the book

Phoenix in Action is an example-based book that teaches you to build production-quality web apps. You’ll handle business logic, database interactions, and app designs as you progressively create an online auction site. As you go, you’ll build everything from the core components to the real-time user interactions where Phoenix really shines.

what's inside

  • Functional programming in a web environment
  • An introduction to Elixir
  • Database interactions with Ecto
  • Real-time communication with channels

about the reader

For web developers familiar with a framework like Rails or ASP.NET. No experience with Elixir or Phoenix required.

about the author

Geoffrey Lessel is a seasoned web developer who speaks and blogs about Elixir and Phoenix.

This book will teach you the mechanics of the technology but, more importantly, it will explain how to think in Phoenix.

From the Foreword by Saša Jurić, author of Elixir in Action, Second Edition

Loaded with examples and best practices to tame the Phoenix!

Vincent Theron, Sun Life Financial

Not only covers the framework fundamentals, but also touches on advanced topics such as migrations.

Mina Tawfik, Ericsson

Phoenix is a powerful framework and Phoenix in Action shows how quickly and easily you can create complex functionalities that would take many lines of code in other languages.

Fillipe Massuda, Thinkific
