Todo Backend Application using Phoenix/Elixir deployed to Heroku with Docker

Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications.

Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development and the embedded software domain.

What you would gain.

I have created a Todo API Application where you would easily see how to write an app in Elixir/Phoenix and run on your local Docker container. Also, you will see how to remotely access your container in VSCode, and how to deploy an app to Heroku. It also shows you how easy it is to write test in Elixir :).

Tools used.

Elixir/Phoenix, VSCode, Docker, and Heroku.
