Perhaps this question has been asked in the past (I am new to the forum), but as I get started with Elixir, I am curious about the learning approach that worked best for you when starting.
I understand we learn differently, and internalizing core concepts is a multi-factor process, but if you ever struggled to get on board with the language (especially given it resides in the functional paradigm), how did you make learning strides? This goes to both beginners and experts.
As a note, I have read extensively about elixir and its ecosystem. It is very promising for the web domain, and I love dedicated and passionate community that steadily growing.
My learning goal: to leverage on it’s fault tolerance and concurrency strengths to build web apps that can scale. And also because Phoenix LiveView offers an interesting way of approaching UI.
My Starting Point: Currently taking The Pragmatic Studio’s Elixir/OTP course, which is very comprehensive and insightful.
Also Reading Dave Thomas & Jose Valim’s Programming Elixir Book (2018)
Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks
