Elixir School

Lessons about the Elixir programming language.

Elixir-School is an open and community driven effort inspired by Twitter’s Scala School. The site’s content consists of peer-reviewed lessons on various Elixir topics that range in difficulty. The lessons are currently available in over 10 languages to help make programming Elixir more accessible to non-English speakers.

Lastly I was lucky enough to have direct access to Sean Callan of Elixir School who did code reviews of all my stuff and helped me progress to proficiency. Having a mentor is always a huge help.

Another idea is to support Elixir School, which seems to have a good workflow for translators and is a great way to get started with Elixir.

Elixir School is a great project and maybe it would be a good place to host such resources indeed.

If i want to extend the elixir school example, I'm an intermediary recruiter, as so I have a amount of developer profiles with some attributes describing their abilities (eg known languages, country, city etc). When i receive a job offer, my job is to match a set of dev on this offer.

Guardian is fairly easy to set up and Elixir School has a fairly nice and short walk-through.

There's also the wonderful Elixir School site that serves well as a reference guide to the features of Elixir, but what newbies really need is a gentler introduction to Elixir.

But still, elixir school seems to be a good place for it.

poolboy is the most popular pooling library, can see a discussion and links on using it here and the elixir school website has a section for poolboy specificly too.

Elixir School is a great resource, but I caution folks using it to learn the ins and outs.

Travis Mathis @TravisM
Basically the answer is to build stuff.. It's almost always how I learn anything.. Elixir School was a huge help, and I read 2 Elixir/OTP books that I can't remember the name of.

In addition to the Études for Elixir, I've found Elixir School to be a good learning resource as well. I will have to check out exercism.io

My use case is pretty close from the elixir school:

Once you got control flow and functions, variable etc you can try to have a look at elixir school or "Getting Started". And feel free to ask any question about the tutorial you are following

You can try my tutorial here or check out the Elixir School lesson

Stuart Welham @swelham
You should definitely take a look at elixir school in that case.

To follow the elixir school example, how could i retrieve people knowing Java ?

Khaja Minhajuddin @minhajuddin
In the elixir school example, "Java" is not part of the key but is a value.

The creator of Elixir School is an Ueberauth/Guardian maintainer...

Now working through Elixir School, have bought the elixir books from Manning (Elixir in Action by Saša Jurić and The Little Elixir & OTP Guidebook by Benjamin Tan Wei Hao). Also in the shelf is Programming Elixir 1.2 by Dave Thomas.

I've just discovered a context, which may be somewhat common, where pronouncing it as "from" may be somewhat of a clash. I've just started reading the Elixir School page on OTP Concurrency (https://elixirschool.com/lessons/advanced/otp-concurrency/) and am wondering, is it a common idiom (or just theirs) for a GenServer or similar thing, to refer to the sender of a request as from?

That was about 2 months ago, and since then I worked through "Take Off With Elixir", most of the Elixir School and am about halfway through "Programming Phoenix", although there are a couple of errors or outdated bits in it.
