Enjoy reading your favorite Elixir books with a group of other Alchemists, introducing the Elixir Book Club.
General topics about the Elixir language.
Learn how to use pattern matching instead of guard clauses to implement really clean control flow in Elixir.
Learn how to use the Contex package to render server-side SVG charts that you can update in real-time with LiveView.
In this series, we’re instrumenting a Phoenix app and sending metrics to StatsD with the help of Elixir and Erlang’s Telemetry offerings. In Part III we’ll incorporate Erlang’s
telemetry_poller library into our Phoenix app so that we can observe and report on Erlang VM Telemetry events.
In this series, we’re instrumenting a Phoenix app and sending metrics to StatsD with the help of Elixir and Erlang’s Telemetry offerings. In Part III we’ll examine Phoenix and Ecto’s out-of-the-box Telemetry events and use
Telemetry.Metrics to observe a wide-range of such events.
In this series, we’re instrumenting a Phoenix app and sending metrics to StatsD with the help of Elixir and Erlang’s Telemetry offerings. In Part II we’ll use Elixir’s
TelemetryMetricsStatsd libraries to define and send metrics to StatsD for a given Telemetry event.
The recent release of the LiveDashboard library allows us to visualize our application metrics, performance and behavior in real-time. In this post, we’ll add LiveDashboard to our Phoenix app, examine the out-of-the-box features and take a look under the hood to understand how LiveDashboard hooks into Telemetry events in order to visualize them.
In this series, we’re instrumenting a Phoenix app and sending metrics to StatsD with the help of Elixir and Erlang’s Telemetry offerings. In Part I we’ll start out by setting up a basic, DIY Telemetry pipeline and examining how Erlang’s Telemetry library works under the hood
It’s easy to end up with an overly complex LiveView that houses lots of business rules and responsibilities. We can use
Phoenix.LiveComponent to build a LiveView feature that is clean, maintainable and adherent to the Single Responsibility Principle.

We’ll use LiveView’s
live_link/2 together with the
handle_params/3 callback to allow users to sort a table in real-time.
The release of Elixir 1.9 gave us
mix release and the ability to support basic releases, runtime configuration and more, natively in Elixir. Learn how we were able to build a production release of an Elixir umbrella app with Docker,
mix release and the new

Follow along as we look at how to dynamically compose Ecto queries using pattern matching and reduction.
We attempt to clear up some confusion around configuration by looking at the different types, the roles they play, and a different approach we could take.
Follow along as we take a peek at what’s inside the latest Elixir release. Learn more about the all new code formatter, exciting dynamic supervisors, and changes coming to your code editors that make working in Elixir even better!
