Yay. An elixir enthusiast. I wanna learn this. But the syntax like scala, Haskell etc isn't so friendly to me. Defo would be following your journey

:) I can't really speak much of haskell or scala, but the biggest change for me was moving from a multi paradigm approach to a purely functional one. The curve isn't actually about syntax, ik it seems scary at first(hello haskell and endofunctors? static types? composition?) but it's actually harmless if you try it for a bit, that said you can apply a lot of the same practices in your fav language 🤷‍♂️
