A No-Slides Introduction to Elixir and the Phoenix Framework

A no-slides (ok, maybe one or two), code-based introduction to Elixir and the Phoenix Framework. We'll build up a simple web app from the ground up, stopping briefly to examine some of the things that makes Elixir and Phoenix so interesting: * Functional programming concepts in Elixir (immutability, first class functions, etc.) * "Process oriented programming" with Elixir * Tooling ecosystem: iex (REPL), mix, hex, ecto * Phoenix Framework features: routing, controllers, etc. * Combine Elixir’s processes with Phoenix Channels for real-time communication with web and mobile clients * Getting started with the Elixir and Phoenix open source communities
