Below you can find resources for getting started with Elixir.
These are my notes for learning Elixir.
Setting myself the challenge to learn Elixir, again.
Yesterday I wanted to monitor the processes that my Elixir application was spawning.
I knew there was something called
Observer, but couldn't remember exactly how to do it.
Taking a look at the doc, I found this debugging page that mentioned
The suggested usage was with
iex -S mix and then running
:observer.start() in the
mix shell manually.
I don't like manual things that much.
Let's try to monitor crypto assets through the Coinmarketcap API, with Elixir!
Topics I want to explore in this exercise are:
- Elixir Supervision trees
- HTTP calls with Elixir (with HTTPoison)
- TDD and Refactoring
As soon as Elixir was released a few years ago, I got into it and started learning and building things with it.
I also went to my first Erlang+Elixir conf, and had the chance & honour to meet Joe Armstrong, #rememberingjoe.
On 2020/04/22, during quarantine, I decided to get back to Elixir (who knows: maybe even dabble with Erlang directly).
I post-poned this too much now, it's time to get back to the distributed programming world.
Without further ado, below my journey (in form of a daily journal) about learning more about Elixir (again), the BEAM, plausible analytics and things discovered along the way!
