While I believe the book is complete by itself to help devs to kickstart projects using Phoenix, there are definitely project specific challenges and questions that could eat up several days of your time if you just keep Googling around.
Save hours of frustation by getting into one-on-one video call with me for 1 hour to discuss any questions you may have regarding your Phoenix project.

When I was unable to buy subscription for Practicing Ruby, Gregory Brown was generous enough to subscribe me free of cost when I wrote to him asking for it. I am deeply moved to this day, on this act of generosity, for granting me free subscription to one of the best materials available for programmers with no questions asked.
I feel, it's now my turn to pass on the favor that I received from him.
I believe each of the editions offer a good value for the price, but I understand that "affordable" is a relative term that depends on individual circumstances. If you have to think twice about whether you'd be financially comfortable with purchasing the above packages, please email me requesting a discounted or free access. I will happily give you discounted/free access to Complete Edition of my book with no questions asked.
