I’ve been trying to start learning Elixir for a couple of weeks while I develop a tiny project I have on node.js, but every time I try to step into this world, I get stuck at finding good, free materials for learning it. I’m not stingy, I’m just Venezuelan (minimum monthly salary: the equivalent of 10 dollars/month, and dollars are illegal to trade in).
I searched all the internet in look for Dave Thomas’ book and could only find a 2014 version for free. I would study using it, but I’m scared that Elixir has evolved too much in these two years and I’ll be stuck using old formulas to solve problems that have much easier solutions. So I’ve been looking for ways to study it and I don’t know if my Google skills are lacking or there just isn’t any proper means of learning it without paying an arm an a leg first.
