    1 thought on “Elixir in Action”

    1. Programming Elixir: Functional > Concurrent > Pragmatic > Fun presented different valuable topics --it went more into macros nearing the end, which I appreciated--however, it didn't seem to build knowledge for the reader as well as Elixir in Action. Nearly a third of this book is devoted to managing and scaling an example application in Elixir/OTP. At certain points during Programming Elixir, I felt the need to skim and move forward quickly. This would've been impossible with Elixir in [...]

    2. A little dated (e.g. Map usage), but the content here is great. I feel like this is a deeper dive than Programming Elixir but the latter is more up-to-date and more fun to read.

    3. the only book about production grade elixir applications that I've read so far. I'll revisit this one in the future, that's for sure

    4. Pretty awesome book on ElixirI already knew Erlang so it was easier to catch upbut still the books does a pretty good job on explaining things in an easy wayMy first book on Elixir and I'm glad I chose this one to start -:)Lots of examples and good explanationstally recommendedd as for Elixir as a languagery interesting and pretty well designed

    5. Elixir (as a young tech) has a good start in terms of books - PragProg's "Programming Elixir" is decent & "Elixir in Action" is very nice as well (even if we had to wait a bit until it leaves MEAP stage).Pros:1.) VERY good introduction to the language & its syntax2.) VERY good introduction to OTP & gen_server: imho better than the one in "PE"3.) Great code examples -> readable, concise, but properly set in context of current topicCons:1.) Very little about the practices around pro [...]

    6. Definitively a must read if you want to learn Elixir and start to build OTP applications. The book is fun, and the examples are easy to understand. The application Saša uses as example is very simple, and it is developed though the most part of the book.This book has some complex subjects and skip the very basics, so I don't think is for Elixir beginners. For those, I recommend Dave Thomas's Programming Elixir book.

    7. Great book to learn a great new language. Sasa also teaches you about functional programming, and the whole Erlang/OTP history. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to find out more about the elixir language.

    8. This is exactly the book I am looking for. It doesn't waste time telling you how to do really basic things in Elixir and it puts its focus on Elixir's important parts suchas concurrency and distributed system. It helps me a lot to understand why Elixir matters.

    9. Gives a pretty good idea about many important concepts of Erlang and Elixir eco system. And all the presented concepts are a preparation to building distributed fault-tolerant applications with Elixir for production.

    10. Elixir is going to be what hipsters will use a couple of years down the line. The book is well written, gives you enough to make you curios, but does not even pretend it's an exhaustive treatment of Erlang,OTP or even Elixir itself.

    11. Great book, gives powerful insights on how to push your code to production, prepare releases and monitor your applications. I wish the debugging sections was a bit more expanded and maybe a few examples on performing code updates on a running system.
