The book and the video have the same content. You don't have to choose! You get both the video and the book for the same price.
This is not a tutorial where you get to sit back and watch us code - you're on the hot seat!
Beautiful, concise, entertaining material designed to keep you engaged and writing elegant Elixir. You'll get epub, mobi, and an HTML site. The book and video contain the same material.
Top-quality, focused, high-production value video tutorials from the creator of Tekpub. Tightly edited with great sound quality - this isn't just a voice in front of a set of boring slides.
All of the code in both the book and the video is available in our company Github repo. Step through the commits, or download entire chapters - it's up to you.

You don't learn unless you do, and Rob writes some pretty bad code that you get to fix for us. You will also learn skills to troubleshoot Elixir and OTP.
Now let it work. Mischief, thou art afoot. Take thou what course thou wilt... We think Rob might be up to no good - plotting to take our database offline. You wouldn't help him with that... would you?
If you're interested redfour.io is a great way to learn about Elixir https://t.co/LTNlYP6zWB— Paul D'Ambra (@pauldambra) January 15, 2016
Does RedFour represent a new best way to learn a programming language?— Joel Bennett (@Jaykul) December 30, 2015
Sort of. This material is primarily for developers who are curious about working with Elixir but don't have much experience with the language. You should have experience programming, however.
As always, you get your money back with no questions asked
Absolutely. Testing is core to what we do at Red:4 - that said we don't spend our entire time writing tests. We explore various ways of working with the code then verify our ideas with tests. Moreover, the downloadable code needs your help! Which means you get to write more tests.
Yes. We need to stay up to date with Elixir so when the language changes we'll update as needed.
We have a Discourse-powered forum just for this purpose!
