Programmer Passport: OTP
OTP is a library for building fault tolerant systems with self-healing properties; its services power many of the world's reliable telecom infrastructure. It also powers many of Elixir's most powerful capabilities. In this fast-paced book—first published with Groxio's Programmer Passport—you'll learn about the most important abstractions that power OTP. This approachable guide will give you a high-level understanding before diving into individual details. This understanding will tell you how the core APIs work so you'll know why Elixir programmers write code the way they do.
To start, this guide will walk you through building your own basic service that works in the same way as OTP's foundational GenServer. This quick exercise will gently ease you into the way GenServers work. You'll build your own GenServer, and then quickly move on to adding the supervision services to enable the reliability and self-healing properties that make Elixir famous. Once you've done so, you'll add features like a dynamic supervisor, and use a process registry to make your program more flexible and dynamic.
Find out what Groxio customers already know. The assistance of an experienced guide will help you learn how to use OTP to build reliable, highly concurrent systems more quickly than you could without one.
