Get Started With Phoenix



Phoenix is a web framework for the up-and-coming Elixir language. With a server-side MVC pattern, it's similar to other web frameworks like Ruby on Rails or the Python framework Django. Phoenix is a new framework, though, with new ideas to make web development easier and safer.

In this course you will learn how to use the Phoenix framework and get an in-depth introduction to its key architectural concepts. You'll build a web app right through to deployment, and along the way you'll learn about how Phoenix handles template rendering, asset compilation, database integration, WebSockets, testing, and more!
