About the Book

Are you interested in web development? Seen Erlang and Elixir around and want to know what the fuss is about? Well, read along to learn how to apply Elixir for use in web development!

Follow with me as well explore using Elixir for web development, and we will figure out how to leverage the Erlang VM to do our bidding at the same time.

We are primarily going to focus on using a small and by no means exhaustive set of libraries to cover these topics:

  • Getting started
  • Routing
  • Templating
  • Middleware
  • Working with data sources
  • Hosting
  • ...and more!

About the Author

Shane Logsdon
Shane Logsdon

I am a polyglot developer striving to build performant and scalable applications and libraries targeted for the web.

I have been building applications for the web since 2003, when I was enrolled in a “Web Programming” class in high school. The course was supposed to cover only HTML and CSS, but myself and a few others were offered to learn PHP instead because of our quick grasp of the basics. I’ve been tinkering with and learning web programming on my own ever since.

Professionally, I have developed for a variety of companies ranging from individuals and startups to agencies and financial instutions in a variety of programming languages, including C# and VB.NET, PHP, and Elixir.

My current passions include improving developer efficiency and experience, functional programming (in the form of Elixir, Erlang, and Haskell), and writing resilient code (whether by architecture choice, testing, or leveraging language/platform traits).

Defending your civil liberties in a digital world.

Based in San Francisco, EFF is a donor-supported membership organization working to protect fundamental rights regardless of technology.

From the Internet to the iPod, technologies are transforming our society and empowering us as speakers, citizens, creators, and consumers. When our freedoms in the networked world come under attack, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the first line of defense. EFF broke new ground when it was founded in 1990—well before the Internet was on most people's radar—and continues to confront cutting-edge issues defending free speech, privacy, innovation, and consumer rights today. From the beginning, EFF has championed the public interest in every critical battle affecting digital rights.
