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
- Working with data sources
- ...and more!
About the Author
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).
