Take Off With Elixir

A 3-hour video with an 18-chapter companion book, learn Elixir the fun way.

Red:4 is a fictional aerospace startup that needs your help! Through a book, a video, or both you can learn Elixir the fun way by immersing yourself in an on-the-job style set of problems. For instance, you will set up a project to calculate escape velocity for each of the planets in our solar system, learning pattern matching and language basics along the way. You’ll move on to orbital mechanics while learning how to debug and refactor your code for clarity and meaning. You’ll learn list basics and data storage techniques as you build a solar flare tracking system. Finally, you’ll dive into OTP using Ecto and PostgreSQL - all in an effort to overwhelm our internal systems with the power of Elixir!

I can also recommend Take Off With Elixir, it's a lot of fun and I love the way Rob Conery writes.

I prefer going into practical stuff as soon as possible so I've also subscribed to the Red:Four tutorial which is awesome.

I am thinking of getting Red4 and I like what I see in Elixir in Action (anyone know why the Manning books are more expensive than the PragProg ones?).
