This Thursday (Feb 9th) at 16.30pm UTC, I’ll be chatting to José Valim, the Creator of Elixir, to discuss Elixir, why he made it functional, its evolution, and its future. It’s going to be a really fun session!
It’ll be live-streamed on YouTube and Twitch and you can set a reminder here:
If you have a question you’d like answering, please add it to this thread. I’m going going to prioritise questions from Elixir contributors and mentors and then from the wider contributor/mentor/donor base, but if your question is intriguing enough, I may well ask it!
Amazing and what a coincidence! Few days ago on the Elixir forum, I have made a post about my github repository of my solutions where I shared how Exercism and Elixir are awesome and how they taught me new things.
In summary, I started learning Elixir thanks to Exercism which gave me the chance to try the language with few challenges. After that, I have decided to I learn Elixir seriously with different resources. I came back later to Exercism, but this time to tackle all available challenges of the Elixir track. While doing this, I learned new concepts and did my first OSS contributions. Now I am a mentor on the Elixir track.
If you learn better with videos, there is Pragmatic Studio where I have taken all their Elixir courses. There is also ElixirCast and Alchemist Camp which are also recommended but I have not tried them yet.
I also recommend to visit the different Elixir channels if you just want to have a look, searching for other resources or have some questions:
Elixir forum: I have seen few posts about learning resources for beginners.
