This book is not a top-to-bottom reference guide to Elixir. Instead, it is intended to give you enough information to know what questions to ask and when to ask them. So approach what follows with a spirit of adventure. Try the code as you read, and don’t stop there. Ask yourself questions and then try to answer them, either by coding or searching the Web.
You’re joining the Elixir community while it is still young. Things are exciting and dynamic, and there are plenty of opportunities to contribute.
