I’ve been learning Elixir for a while now, and have used Phoenix to build a few simple apps, but feel like I’m not really breaking out of “tutorial-mode” where I’m either just following guides, or doing really trivial stuff.
I think trying to get to grips with a project that other, more experienced Elixir developers are working on too could really help get me past this plateau I seem to be stuck on. If there are any open source projects around that I could help on, whilst learning, I’d be really interested in getting stuck in!
In terms of my history, I’ve built reasonably complex apps before with Node/JS, but Elixir and it’s best practises are obviously very different. I’ve never contributed to OS before either, so that might be a learning curve, but I feel that OS has given me such a leg-up in these early years of my career, that I’d like to start trying to contribute back to it if I can.
So anyone need an extra set of hands on a project?
