The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook

The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook gets you started programming applications with Elixir and OTP. You begin with a quick overview of the Elixir language syntax, along with just enough functional programming to use it effectively. Then, you’ll dive straight into OTP and learn how it helps you build scalable, fault-tolerant and distributed applications through several fun examples.

For July 4th, Manning is offering a 50% off code that works on all books, including the well-known and loved Elixir in Action and The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook which I've been reading and is IMO a great way to make the move from knowing Elixir to knowing Elixir + OTP.

@kostonstyleElixir In Action does a great job of covering OTP. I haven't seen the Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook yet but I'd imagine it also does a good job of covering OTP as well.

The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook gets you started writing applications with Elixir and OTP. You?ll begin with the immediately comfortable Elixir language syntax, along with just enough functional programming to use it effectively.

Yes, true - I have been reading Elixir in Action, The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook, and other books, as well as reading the official docs, watching Elixir conference talks on Youtube...

I recently finished The Little Elixir and OTP guidebook, but it just didn't click for me. I'm almost done with Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP though. That book is great!

The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook fills in a lot of great context, as does Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP

So, I'll finish up reading Programming Elixir 1.2, Elixir in Action, The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook, and Design for Scalability with Erlang/OTP and hope there is another 40% discount before I'm ready to move on to Learning Phoenix.

I've been reading The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook and would like to build on the ThySupervisor + ThyWorker example and implement it into a phoenix application.

My favorite book so far is Benjamin Tan's, The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook.

Keep in mind, it looks as though some bug fixes did not make it in "The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook". I'm sure once those make it in that book, it will be rock solid!

Now working through Elixir School, have bought the elixir books from Manning (Elixir in Action by Saša Jurić and The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook by Benjamin Tan Wei Hao). Also in the shelf is Programming Elixir 1.2 by Dave Thomas.

I am currently working through The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook and to consolidate knowledge I have made a mix project that uses several spawned processes with a coordinator that writes the collected data to a JSON file when they have completed.

I wonder if I came across this before, maybe in Introducing Elixir or Programming Elixir 1.2 . Thus far, I've not come across an explanation in The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook.

I'm reading The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook and there is an example in Chapter 2 using it (without an explanation or introduction to the operator). Here is the snippet of code from the example:

I built the metro app "wmata" using the Metex app from The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook as a template. The Metex app makes an http request to a weather API and stores the results. To store the results it uses a GenServer. I just updated it to send the request to metro API.

I do not want to implement my own pool, unless I have to. (That being said, the little Elixir & OTP Guidebook has building your custom pool as one of its exercises)

Voger @voger
I don't know why but both "The Little Elixir & Otp Guidebook" and "Elixir in Action" are getting scary as soon as they introduce the Supervisors.

alamba78 @alamba78
I was part of the review program for the Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook, and as my first introduction to Elixir, I found it not suitable for beginners.

negative

Sasha Fonseca @sashaafm
LEOG is coming along nicely but it is just useful for learning OTP, the Elixir part is very weak and not suitable to beginners.

FrigidCode @frigidcode
The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook I would avoid, just purchased it and its full of errors and is a bit dated.
