With a basic web server now in place, this week we dive into various Elixir techniques and design options.
In modules 12, 13, and 14 released today from our Elixir/OTP course, we explore:
when, why, and how to use structs vs maps to ensure our functions always get the expected type
handling a POST request by using the pervasive Elixir technique of matching head and tail patterns
how recursion makes Elixir go ‘round and ‘round and how the pros use it to their advantage
