Real-Time Phoenix, in beta

August 28, 2019

On this day in 1845, the first issue of Scientific American magazine was published. Information and discoveries flow a lot faster these days, and you need to be able to keep up: not just faster, but in real time. Use Elixir programming and Phoenix Channels to create a real-time experience the easy way. Read all about it in Real-Time Phoenix: Build Highly Scalable Systems with Channels, now available in beta from pragprog.com/book/sbsockets.

Come and get it.

Real-Time Phoenix: Build Highly Scalable Systems with Channels

Real-time applications come with real challenges—persistent connections, multi-server deployment, and strict performance requirements are just a few. Don't try to solve these challenges by yourself—use a framework that handles them for you. Elixir and Phoenix Channels provide a solid foundation on which to build stable and scalable real-time applications. Build applications that thrive for years to come with the best practices found in this book.

Understand the magic of real-time communication by inspecting the WebSocket protocol in action. Avoid performance pitfalls early in the development lifecycle with a catalog of common problems and their solutions. Leverage GenStage to build a data pipeline that improves scalability. Break your application before your users do and deploy with confidence. Build a real-world project using solid application design and testing practices that help make future changes a breeze. Create distributed apps that can scale to many users with tools like Phoenix Tracker. Deploy and monitor your application with confidence and reduce outages.

Deliver an exceptional real-time experience to your users, with easy maintenance, reduced operational costs, and maximized performance, using Elixir and Phoenix Channels.

Now in beta from pragprog.com/book/sbsockets.
