I initially got into Elixir because of this course. I also took 3 courses prior and because I loved the courses before, I've made a quick Google search to get to know what Elixir actually is and signed up.
Currently I am half way through the course. Before this course, Python was my favourite programming language for a long time. Now Elixir is! This is such an awesome language! I had so many wow effects and so much is included like creating docs, testing and creating markdown examples which also will be tested automatically. I took me a little while to understand everything but now I'm understanding more and more.
After this course is done, I will probably buy "Programming Elixir" by Dave Thomas. Anyways, I love Elixir :D.
