Description

In order to deliver an Elixir application over the web, it's essential to understand certain key concepts, such as models and views. With this course, Getting Started with Phoenix, you'll learn about how a functional programming language (Elixir) presents an application on the web. You'll see a way to structure your project that keeps application logic separate from presentation logic. You will also learn how to deploy your application, so that it doesn't just reside on your computer. By the end of the course, you'll have an application that you can use for future reference and be equipped to start writing new web applications with Phoenix and Elixir.

Hi everyone, my name is Nate Taylor and welcome to my course Getting Started With Phoenix.

I am a software engineer at Aviture, in Omaha, NE.

Phoenix combines the power of functional programming with the common pattern of MVC to deliver fully functional applications via the web.

This course introduces you to the Phoenix framework by creating an Elixir application and delivering it via the web.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Interacting with database models
  2. Displaying & interacting with data on forms
  3. Real-time notifications
  4. Deploying Phoenix
By the end this course, you’ll know how to create AND deploy a new Phoenix project, as well as all the steps necessary to add new content to an application. You’ll even learn how you can provide real-time communication to users on your site.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with Elixir.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Phoenix with the Getting Started With Phoenix course, at Pluralsight.
