Learning Erlang and Elixir through Exercism and Advent of Code

There are several good free resources for learning Erlang and Elixir. In the past few months, I have been using Exercism and the discussions on Advent of Code problems (at Elixir Forum and Erlang Forums) to learn more about those two languages. These two learning resources provide a very active way of learning the basics of these languages.

In this talk, I will discuss some of what I learned recently and I will also say which one I think is the best option for beginners.


Viewers will understand the fundamental differences between Exercism and Advent of Code and will be able to choose which one (or both) will they use for their own learning.


Programmers, either newbies or intermediate, who want to learn the best ways of solving problems using Elixir or Erlang.
