Just wanted to say that this year is going to be the one I learn Elixir more than a
hello world app.
I discovered Elixir a few months back and have been really inspired watching all the different conference talks, listening to podcasts, and reading blog posts. I learned to program a decade ago writing WordPress themes and PHP. Now I’m half and half between custom WP work for F500’s and bespoke web apps with Laravel (Rails-like for PHP).
My first project is to build a little general purpose tracking app for some other new year’s resolutions, but I’m curious what you would build as a learning project if you were starting today? What are some things I could add to a run of the mill CRUD app to add that bit of Elixir flare?
Do you think it’s worth it to start with Phoenix Liveview as a total noob to the framework, or is there more practical utility in traditional HTTP requests?
PS I’m looking to change jobs. If you’re interested in teaching me Eliixir on the job, DMs are open @daronspence
