Running concurrent, fault-tolerant applications that scale is a very demanding responsibility. After learning the abstractions that Elixir gives us, developers are able to build such applications with inconceivable low effort. There is a big gap between playing around with Elixir and running it in production, serving live requests. This book will help you fill this gap by going into detail on several aspects of how Elixir works and showing concrete examples of how to apply the concepts learned to a full-fledged application.
In this book you will learn how to build a rock-solid application, beginning by using Mix to create a new project. Then you will learn how the use of Erlang’sOTP, along with the Elixir abstractions that run on top of it (such as GenServer or GenStage), that allow you to build applications that are easy to parallelize and distribute. You will also master Supervisors (and supervision trees), and comprehend how they are the basis for building fault-tolerant applications. Then, you will use Phoenix to create a web interface for your application. Upon finishing implementation, you will learn how to take your application to the cloud, using Kubernetes to automatically deploy, scale and manage it. Last, but not least, you will keep your peace of mind by both learning how to thoroughly test and then monitor your application.
