About The Book
Phoenix is a modern web framework built for the Elixir programming language. Elegant, fault-tolerant, and performant, Phoenix is as easy to use as Rails and as rock-solid as Elixir's Erlang-based foundation. Phoenix in Action builds on your existing web dev skills, teaching you the unique benefits of Phoenix along with just enough Elixir to get the job done.
Foreword by Sasa Juric, author of Elixir in Action, Second Edition.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
About the Technology
Modern web applications need to be efficient to develop, lightning fast, and unfailingly reliable. Phoenix, a web framework for the Elixir programming language, delivers on all counts. Elegant and intuitive, Phoenix radically simplifies the dev process. Built for concurrency, Phoenix channels make short work of developing real-time applications. And as for reliability, Phoenix apps run on the battle-tested Erlang VM, so they're rock solid!
