I am starting with the Mix and OTP guide on elixir-lang.org. It’s seems pretty good and is very understandable. So far everything seems very similar to ruby, which I like. I am going to hold off on touching the Phoenix framework until I have a grasp on the Elixir language itself.
I don’t think that learning any of the popular tools for Elixir will be particularly difficult. Awesome-elixir is an awesome (see what I did there) resource for learning elixir tools.
If anyone wants to hack on an Elixir project or just talk about functional programming in general feel free to hit me up!
