Understanding Process Communication in Elixir
The article dives into the concept of concurrency in Elixir, specifically focusing on the Actor Model and the message passing mechanism. It contrasts traditional shared-memory concurrency with Elixir's isolated process approach, highlighting the benefits of the latter in avoiding race conditions through process isolation and message using mailboxes. The author, Alvise Susmel, also explains how the send and receive functions work, providing examples of sending messages to processes and receiving results, demonstrating the concepts through terminal code snippets. The article is highly informative for understanding how Elixir manages concurrency and the practical application of these concepts.
