what are your views about this book?


I do highly recommend it :slight_smile: Just a personal opinion.


Okay my purpose of reading this is: How I can spread process over multiple machines for an Elixir application. How to to handle a large scale application on multiple nodes.

Will It help me in this regards?


Chapter 13 is on Distributed Erlang.

If distribution is your only goal, then it might not fit your need.

But it does explain in great details OTP, from the Erlang side.


Actually, We have a large scale application, in Elixir Phoenix. and we are growing day by day with more cameras and request, workers etc. We want to scale that application on multiple machines, and I want to read the concepts and possibly an implementation of that. You know what I mean. can you refer something good?


I would probably look at swarn, by @bitwalker

But I don’t know any documentation that explains in detail distribution. Specifically how to deal with network split…


That comment can be helpfull if you really need or not
