tl;dr; I’d appreciate your willingness to fill in a short survey about the curriculum which you
find most interesting for an Elixir based intermediate to advanced course.
This would aid me as a reference knowing which bonus materials to focus on first.
You can take part in the Elixir Intermediate Course Curriculum Survey here[)
Long story short, I’m currently working on a set of courses under an umbrella group/idea called “Life Efficiency - The Art of Becoming Irreplaceable in an Artificial Intelligence Driven World”
I’ve identified a set of 7 skillsets which will help anyone become irreplaceable.
One of them is Software Development and Computer Knowledge. Which will have 2 courses, one about general computer knowledge, linux, networking, etc.
And the one about software development. Since everything I’ve been doing is around efficiency, it’s natural to choose the best tools for the job. This is why the course will focus on the Elixir ecosystem which is closest to my heart after years of searching and experimenting.
Identifying Solutions to the Problem
The main thing is, I don’t want to do yet another beginner’s course. The world is full of them without much difference. Even those who say “master elixir” just mean the bare basics
Yet, it’s extremely difficult to find any intermediate or advanced course with real life applicability and examples.
So I thought out to create one which explores a variety of topics by creating a real world application from idea conception, to planning, to implementation. By using an iteration based approach (Just like Agile or MVP). Simulating how a real customer is going to change their mind and the apps evolves along the way. Going through a variety of phases and exploring a plethora of tools,software and ways to solve problems.
I’ll be pouring in thousands of hours of experience gathered through reading, experimenting and solving real world problems. (Also observing others being grossly inefficient and figuring out there are better ways.)
A bare minimum knowledge of software development. If 0 means 0 days experience, and 10 means 7-10 years of software development experience. The audience would be situated between a 2 to 5. Increasing their skills to 5-8.
You can share the survey with friends, coworkers, etc.
