As I mentioned at the last DevTricks, there's been discussion about getting an Elixir (and by association, Erlang) study group going.
You probably already know that I am going to be somewhat radio silent in the coming weeks as I await arrival of my child, so it's likely nothing will happen with my involvement for at least 8+ weeks, but I thought it would be great to seed some ideas and have something to discuss at the first meeting.
My suggestions to you, if you are interested in participating in the study group, is to ensure that you can get Elixir and Erlang installed, and then work through the Getting Started guide if you haven't done so already.
Once you've worked through Getting Started, you should likely build the key/value store that starts in the Introduction to Mix.
My guess is that most people will grok the syntax easily but be very confused with OTP, so that's probably where we'll start the study group.
