Reading – Programming Phoenix
Just completed reading through the B2.0 of “Programming Phoenix” book during the weekend. I hadn’t been able to use phoenix some time since pre-1.0, but this book was a good material for catching up the latest features.
The book starts with the strong statements about the benefits of phoenix and underlying elixir, as in the subtitle – Productive |> Reliable |> Fast. Then, the main content explains the features by gradually building up simple and concise application called Rumbl. Building up standard CRUD operations to user models backed by Ecto with postgreSQL DB, and implementing authentication using the model didn’t take long and it was a good exercise.
Definitely looking for the remaining part to complete, which includes the web-socket channel.
