FYI: apress.com

CYBER MONDAY SALE starts November 25, 2016.*
Every Apress and Springer eBook in Computer Science, just $9.99. And, for the first time ever, Apress print books only $12.50! Don’t forget to log in before placing items in your cart.

*This offer is valid for individual customers only and redeemable only on apress.com and springer.com. Institutions such as libraries and corporations are excluded. For institutional sales please visit Apress Corporate Sales. This promotion does not work in combination with other discounts or gift cards.

I’m not aware of any Elixir/Erlang specific content (other than the upcoming Erlang and Elixir for Imperative Programmers) but there may be some Springer titles of interest for the more academically inclined and there is Peter Seibel’s‡ Coders at Work (2009) with interviews featuring:

  • Jamie Zawinski: Author of XEmacs and early Netscape/Mozilla hacker
  • Brad Fitzpatrick: Writer of LiveJournal, OpenID, memcached, and Perlbal
  • Douglas Crockford: JSON founder, JavaScript architect at Yahoo!
  • Brendan Eich: Inventor of JavaScript, CTO of the Mozilla Corporation
  • Joshua Bloch: Author of the Java collections framework, now at Google
  • Simon Peyton Jones: Coinventor of Haskell and lead designer of Glasgow Haskell Compiler
  • Peter Norvig: Director of Research at Google and author of the standard text on AI
  • Guy Steele: Coinventor of Scheme and part of the Common Lisp Gang of Five, currently working on Fortress
  • Dan Ingalls: Smalltalk implementor and designer
  • L. Peter Deutsch: Author of Ghostscript, implementer of Smalltalk-80 at Xerox PARC and Lisp 1.5 on PDP-1
  • Ken Thompson: Inventor of UNIX
  • Frances Allen: Pioneer in optimizing compilers, first woman to win the Turing Award (2006) and first female IBM fellow
  • Bernie Cosell: One of the main software guys behind the original ARPANET IMPs and a master debugger
  • Donald Knuth: Author of The Art of Computer Programming and creator of TeX

and of course

  • Joe Armstrong: Inventor of Erlang

which contains the (in)famous quote:

I think the lack of reusability comes in object-oriented languages, not in functional languages. Because the problem with object-oriented languages is they’ve got all this implicit environment that they carry around with them. You wanted a banana but what you got was a gorilla holding the banana and the entire jungle.

‡ and Peter Seibel’s Practical Common Lisp (2011) (online version).

There is also Expert F# 4.0 (2015).

Just thought you might be interested in a 40% discount code for any book in the Pragmatic Bookshelf. I just completed my Elixir book collection with Functional Web Development with Elixir, OTP, and Phoenix.

The code is randy_lives_31415 found from this tweet. It says it only lasts for a day but I just used it successfully.
