I've been skimming a lot of resources lately on learning Elixir. My preferred learning method is to build things immediately, while learning the syntax and finer details along the way. I've never been a fan spending hours learning the finer details & not having anything to show for it. If that's your preferred style of learning I suggest the following resources:
Brand New to Elixir
If you haven't written any Elixir at all try these resources.
- There is a free 30 minute preview which is one of the best explanations of the syntax I've seen. If you like it, you can even buy the full tutorial.
- Has a free course, a free screencast & a paid course.
If you would rather learn the syntax first, try the Official Getting Started Tutorial.
