Giveaway: Elixir in Action

The book Elixir in Action by Saša Jurić is widely recognized as one of the best books on this language I favor. I’ve been meaning to run some giveaways and this book was always on the agenda. It shouldn’t be the only one but I think it makes a very appropriate starting point. Especially as the book has been such a starting point for many Elixirists through the years.

Transparency note: This giveaway is supported by Manning, the publisher that published Elixir in Action. I haven’t been paid to do the giveaway but I also didn’t have to pay for the e-books I’m giving away. I think that’s cool of them. Ideally this also means that they sell some extra books, in which case they’ll likely let me give away more books. I’ll attempt to be very clear about how this all holds together and any privacy considerations you should be mindful of.

Privacy note: Links to Elixir in Action and Manning books in this post have some of those UTM parameters that let them know if I drove any traffic with this “campaign”. If you find that upsetting I’d suggest avoiding this post. I try to be clear about this stuff and I don’t sneak things like that in. If you have software installed that strips that stuff out, I don’t mind, it’s your browser.

Let’s give away some books shall we?

I’m giving away three e-book copies of Elixir in Action in this particular giveaway and I’ll divy them up a bit to be fair to old readers and new:

  • One to any of my existing newsletter subscribers that decide to participate in the giveaway. You’ll get a notice about this in this week’s email.
  • One to anyone who decides to sign up for my newsletter between now and until the end of the giveaway period. You are free to unsubscribe after the giveaway period.
  • One to anyone who sends me an email with a screenshot of them subscribed to the Regular Programming in their podcast client before the end of the giveaway period. Include the word “giveaway” in the subject line of the email.

The giveaway period ends on the 17th of December when I sit down and pick winners at an arbitrary time. Get your submissions in before then.

Now if you are keen on some books beyond winning this I suggest you take a look at Manning’s other books and use the discount code nlunderjord21 for 35% off.

If you have some strong recommendations for books from Manning. Let me know and I’ll see if I like them and if I think I should arrange a giveaway of those. You can reach me via or on Twitter where I’m @lawik.
