I'm putting a lot of time into Elixir. I would love anyone's tips, advice, tutorials, or guides they might recommend. Thanks!

I really recommend the little elixir and OTP guidebook. It will teach you the foundations of the language as well as OTP—genservers, supervisors. Additionally, it shows you a bit of Erlang tooling.

I second Elixir School as a great resource for the fundamentals of the language. The Little Elixir and OTP Guidebook also really helped me solidify my understanding of OTP and the power of the underlying Erlang VM.

I'm also currently building an open source website creation platform in Elixir (just announced the beta preview) and I'm planning on writing a bunch of hands-on articles on dev.to about building web services in Elixir.

I've made a lot of screencasts to help people learn Elixir on Alchemist Camp and so far close to a hundred of them are free.

pragprog.com/book/elixir16/program... is a great introduction to Elixir!

After you've gotten a taste there's a lot of other books on Elixir over at pragprog.com.

Search for a nearby elixir meetup, and connect with some friendly people. They may help guide you on your path to learning elixir.
