Intro to Phoenix II

A follow up class to our previous introduction to Phoenix, a web framework for Elixir

Phoenix is a web framework written in Elixir. Elixir is a functional language, built on Erlang, but with a Ruby-like syntax. Elixir promises fast, concurrent, reliable code. Phoenix builds on Elixir, and also on frameworks like Rails, to create a productive and scalable web development framework.

In a previous class we learned some basics about Elixir and Phoenix, and made a simple JSON api. In this class we'll continue our learning by adding model-level relationships (belongs_to and has_many), tests for that behavior, and some other basics depending on how class goes.

This class assumes familiarity with MVC-type web frameworks, and also assumes some basic familiarity with Elixir. If you are new to Elixir, this is a great intro

If you missed the last class but want to get caught up, check out this blog post. Our class followed this post very closely.

I will post a hangout on the whiteboard before class.
