Elixir and OTP provide exceptional tools to build rock-solid back-end applications that scale. Build a web application in a radically different way, with a back end that holds application state. Use persistent Phoenix Channel connections to create the full application in distinct, decoupled layers.
Start by building the business logic as a separate application, without Phoenix. Model the application domain with Elixir Agents and simple data structures Add OTP Behaviours such as gen_server and gen_statem that make managing in-memory state a breeze. Create a supervision tree to boost fault tolerance while separating error handling from business logic. Use Phoenix to build a web interface decoupled from business logic. Use ultra-scalable Phoenix Channels to establish persistent connections between the stateful server and a stateful front-end client.
Learn a whole new way of building web applications with Elixir, OTP, and Phoenix.
"A must-have for new Elixir programmers ready to take on modern web development with the unique features of the platform. Lance gently guides readers through complex topics using fun, digestible examples.”
