So I got laid off two days ago, well not only me but the entire startup went under, I have been professional full-stack dev for over 5 years, working remotely.
While it is depressing getting laid off for no fault of your own, I decided to take this opportunity to learn Elixir/Phoenix because, to be honest, I hate nodeJs.
I’m full stack but I spend most of my time working on the backend and to be frank, I hate nodejs with passion, with its own fragmented dev environment, broken and outdated packages and listing my grief with node would probably take several pages.
Anyway, I have been playing around with Elixir, and I like what I’m seeing so far.
So I decided to focus the next month on studying Elixir.
So I wanted to know What do companies look for when hiring for Elixir developer aside from CRUD/web sockets (Phoenix channels).
I have seen a couple of jobs with GraphQL and Absinthe as a requirement
