So, I’ve just finished Introducing Elixir. I did skip the last chapter on Using macros to extend Elixir as I will get to that when I get a good grip on Elixir and OTP.
Now, I recently bought Dave Thomas’ ebook Elixir Programming 1.2. Should I go into that next or maybe Elixir in Action?
Also, how important is it to learn Erlang at this point? Should I wait till I have a better grasp on Elixir? I did look at Erlang in the past and boy did I hate all the boilerplate. After being spoiled with Elixir, I’m not really looking forward to digging into Erlang unless it will be beneficial.
Also, has anyone read Francisco Cesarini’s new O’Reilly book, Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP? I have heard great things about this book but am wondering how much I’ll enjoy going through Erlang code. LOL. I’ll bite the bullet if I have to but would have loved the same book in Elixir. Maybe someone else who’s Erlang phobic can tell me of their experience with that book.
