What's next for José Valim and Elixir?

We’re joined again by José Valim talking about the recent acquihire of Plataformatec and what that means for the Elixir language, as well as José. We also talk about Dashbit a new 3 person company he helped form from work done while at Plataformatec to help startups and enterprises adopt and run Elixir in production. Lastly we talk about a new idea José has called Bytepack that aims to help developers package and deliver software products to developers and enterprises.

Thank you José for making Elixir! (and the community of course!)
Very inspiring to see your dedication to open source and the creative ideas you have for the business around it.
Definitely going to learn more Elixir for my own good end pleasure :)

What’s the best book to learn Elixir with at this point (yes, I want to kill a tree)? Is it Programming Elixir 1.6?

That’d be my recommendation. Granted, I haven’t surveyed the rest of the field, but it sure helped me get a leg up when I was getting started. I also liked and still recommend Programming Phoenix, but only if you’re interested in building web apps.
