Programming Elixir: Functional |> Concurrent |> Pragmatic |> by Dave Thomas

By Dave Thomas

You are looking to discover useful programming, yet are cast off via the educational think (tell me approximately monads only one extra time). you recognize you would like concurrent purposes, but additionally understand those are nearly most unlikely to get correct. Meet Elixir, a practical, concurrent language equipped at the rock-solid Erlang VM. Elixir's pragmatic syntax and integrated help for metaprogramming will make you effective and retain you for the lengthy haul. This e-book is the creation to Elixir for skilled programmers.

Maybe you would like whatever that is in the direction of Ruby, yet with a battle-proven setting that is unequalled for enormous scalability, concurrency, distribution, and fault tolerance. possibly the time is correct for the subsequent substantial factor. perhaps it is Elixir.

And you should definitely obtain this useful "cheat sheet":​elixir/ElixirCheat.pdf for Elixir syntax.

h5. Print books could be on hand after Elixir 1.0 has been finalized.

As a developer, you may have most likely heard that useful programming strategies aid deal with the complexities of state-of-the-art real-world, concurrent structures. you are additionally investigating designs that assist you maximize uptime and deal with security.

This ebook is your consultant to Elixir, a contemporary, practical, and concurrent programming language. simply because Elixir runs at the Erlang VM, and makes use of the underlying Erlang/OTP structure, it advantages from virtually two decades of study into excessive functionality, hugely parallel, and heavily strong functions. Elixir brings much that is new: a contemporary, Ruby-like, extendable syntax, assemble and runtime evaluate, a hygienic macro approach, and more.

But, simply as importantly, Elixir brings a feeling of pleasure to parallel, practical programming. Your functions turn into enjoyable to paintings with, and the language encourages you to experiment.

Part 1 covers the fundamentals of writing sequential Elixir courses. we will examine the language, the instruments, and the conventions.

Part 2 makes use of those talents to begin writing concurrent code--applications that use all of the cores in your laptop, or all of the machines in your community! And we do it either with and with out OTP.

And half three appears on the extra complicated positive factors of the language, from DSLs and code iteration to extending the syntax.

By the top of this ebook, you will comprehend Elixir, and know the way to use it to unravel your complicated, sleek problems.
