I've been building web-based software for businesses for over 18 years. In the last four years I realized that functional programming was in fact amazing, and have been pretty eager since then to help people build software better.

Daily Drip has easily been one of the most helpful resources on my journey to better understand Elixir and the Phoenix web framework.
Taylor Dolezal Software Architect

With any language there are so many details to learn. What functions are built-in? How should I structure my code? What tools are available for improving my workflow? It’s rare to find one source that can answer so many of these questions, but DailyDrip does this and more for Elixir.

Daily Drip is by far the best resource for learning Elm anywhere, and among the very best online learning platforms, period.
