Have you been experimenting with Elixir, and have got something you want to deploy and have got lost trying to work out how best to deploy it. Deploying Elixir takes you through basic deployments, hot loading and more.
I think I’m gonna really need this in a month or two because of my project’s getting close to the deadline. I’m gonna buy it and I can review and give some feedback when (if) I get around to reading it
Looks like it’s still in progress? Is there a website or blogpost for the book or the author with more information somewhere? The leanpub page is a little light on details, and having a character in a popular sitcom with the same name as the author is defeating my google-fu at the moment.
@dgamidov I bought it and yes it seems to be a 13 page book BUT it says it’s in heavy development and they will be releasing the rest of the book as they progress. Anyway there’s a 90 days refund policy so if there are no updates in 90 days I’m gonna ask for a refund because right now all the info on there can be retrieved with a 5 minute Google search.
EDIT: Wow that book’s 10% complete and last updated a year ago. What kind of scam is that?
I totally get what you’re saying but just keep in mind that the book is only 10% done. There’s still another 117 pages to go. Even 13 out of 13 pages entirely on deployment won’t be enough to judge the quality of the book. So, I think it’s way too early to make claims that the book is a waste of money at this point.
I am ready to buy it again when (if) it will be worth to.
After your post I have checked and now there is progress bar and I can see that it is 10% complete, but 2 days ago there was no progress bar at all. And I was without information if this is the whole book and when there was last update
LMAO. No, I’m not Alan Harper. I just saw the book’s page and saw 13 pages and 10% and wondered what all the fuss was about. If it didn’t have that information 2 days ago, then your complaint and subsequent refund definitely changed that.
I’m hoping the book turns out good. We need to support our small community.
Yes, there was no progress bar and last update information - this made misunderstanding.
I completely agree with you. We should support our community. And make it better.
I hope Alan Harper will see this thread and join our discussion. It will be great to know his plans on this book.
Writing books is huge labour and I didn’t want to demotivate anyone.
