Hey, I have very restricted resources and time so I’m trying to understand the best way to learn Liveview in terms of cost/time.
The PragmaticStudio course seems to be the best if one wants to learn quickly, but being expensive I’m wondering if the Learning Phoenix Liveview Book wouldn’t be better and more deep even if it takes more time, so opinions are welcome.
Having worked my way through the pragstudio course and spent a lot of time looking for other resources, the course is well worth the money spent and is the fastest way to learn. The only downside of the course is that you don’t build a single thing, so you do need to ability to generalize certain concepts and ideas, but it does an excellent job of introducing LiveView. It does assume that you have some understanding of Phoenix and Ecto.
“Being expensive” is a relative concept
Having said that, I deeply appreciate PragmaticStudio as they not only have excellent content but provide Parity Pricing, ie, if you are located in a country with lower purchasing power you have discounts that, as I know, goes at least 60%, so if you really live in one of these countries you just need to use a discount code they provide when you access their webpage and you get a price that should be fair for you.
I wish more would be like them.
