I do think the community would need a book or somethin like udemy course which would cover more in depth cases like complex supervision trees with complex state pasing. In the combination with other real life scenarios, combining let say Apache Kafka, Cassandra, Redis, distributed setup, simulation/prepaaration on how to setup such infrastructure for site going down.
At least to keep in mind, that almost all the books do cover chapters about genserver, supervisor and application. I know that you can build on this, but to see those tiny details in a connected story/ book is priceless.
I do know/own the Elixir in Action and Little elixir and OTP, but now while building something similar as mentioned above i see that we developers woud gain a lot with some more books in that direction. Both books are awesome. Thanks Sasa and Ben!
At least for me Elixir was the choice to go due to all those awesome stories of distributed computing, high availability of complex systems. Not one genserver process and supervision tree with one supervisor.
This are my thoughts now while building real heavy duty infrastructure for connected car platform. And with such book there woud be more projects like this.
I buy every material that comes out for Elixir. So go for it
p.s. A good book on gaming infrastructure, with some gaming server insights woud be soooo great. Personally game server was something i was trying/ would like to build and was reason for me starting with elixir. After I heard/read those great stories from Wooga, etc...
