With several one-off asynchronous tasks now running and getting results at a later time, we’re starting to see a definite pattern emerging. In fact, running functions (or tasks) in a short-lived process is so common that Elixir provides a really helpful abstraction: the Task module.

Find out how to put Elixir’s Task module to work in your app and, more importantly, how it all works under the hood in this week’s new module #23 Asynchronous Tasks from our Elixir/OTP course.

Enjoy!
