Love your clear and explicit explanation of

  1. how mailbox of processes behaves
  2. Module as a kind of data abstraction
  3. going through a similar behaviour implementation to that of GenServer so that i have a better idea of what is going on when using GenServer

looking forward to the next half of the book

When will the 2nd edition complete?

I’ve already made the first pass through all the chapters and handed them off to Manning. The MEAP version should be updated soonish to contain everything, but at the moment I don’t have the exact date. Past that point, we have to wait for the feedback from reviewers, make changes as necessary, and then it’s off to production. The estimated date on the book page says summer 2018. I’m personally hoping that the print version would be released in June or early July, but don’t hold me to it :slight_smile:

The updated MEAP has just been released, and the book is now sent to production. Based on the final review feedback, we’ve decided to add a brief treatment of tasks and agents (about 15 pages). The corresponding sections are available in chapter 10 (now renamed to “Beyond GenServer”). Other than that, there are no major changes, only a couple of minor fixes.

Wish you all a happy reading :slight_smile:

It might be content complete but it looks like some of the book is written in some foreign language

Well… it’s the Manning way to encrypt the real content as It’s just a preview. But I can ensure You the real deal is readable :slight_smile:

The obfuscated liveview version is identified in the URL as v3 (elixir-in-action-second-edition/welcome/v-3/) - that version has been available “in the clear” via MEAP since May 10, 2018.

And having purchased the MEAP from Manning the liveview version isn’t obfuscated as long as that account is logged in.

Yes I know :slight_smile:

You both missed the “j/k” at the bottom of my post!
