We've teamed up with our friends at Manning to give you the chance to win a copy of Elixir in Action by Saša Jurić. Not only that, we have one to give away every month until the end of 2017 - that's one winner each month!
Elixir in Action teaches you how to solve practical problems of scalability, concurrency, fault tolerance, and high availability using Elixir. You'll start with the language, learning basic constructs and building blocks. Then, you'll learn to think about problems using Elixir's functional programming mindset. With that solid foundation, you'll confidently explore Elixir's seamless integration with BEAM and Erlang's powerful OTP framework of battle-tested abstractions you can use immediately. Finally, this highly acclaimed book provides guidance on how to distribute a system over multiple machines and control it in production.
Every month, we will pick a random 6-digit Lucky Number which is displayed on our competition page for all to see. To enter the competition, all you have to do is log in via your Elixir Forum account and receive your weekly entry which is a randomly-generated entry number.
You can obtain a new entry number each week. At the end of the month, if any of your numbers turns out to be closest to that month's Lucky Number, you win!
So far this month, there have been 181 entries in the competition.
To make things more exciting, every now and then, we will announce special bonus days. These are days when you will be able to obtain a bonus entry into the competition. Some of these bonus entries will have a condition, such as first needing to make a post on the forum, or following or mentioning us (or Manning!) on social media. As long as you have met the criteria, you can get your bonus entry. Bonus days will be announced on the forum so be sure to regularly log in!
Not to worry - we've also got you 25% off any ebook published by Manning! Head over to your entries page to get your code and take advantage of this amazing deal.
