Introducing Elixir 2nd Ed (O'Reilly)
Thursday, 16 March 2017

In this hands on introduction, authors Simon St. Laurent and J. David Eisenberg show you how Elixir combines the robust functional programming of Erlang with an approach that looks more like Ruby, and includes powerful macro features for metaprogramming. Updated to cover Elixir 1.4, the second edition of this practical book helps you write simple Elixir programs by teaching one skill at a time.

<ASIN:1491956771>

The book introduces Elixir's pattern matching and process-oriented programming and shows how to build concurrent and resilient programs that scale up and down.
