HELLO WORLD (Introductions thread!)

:raising_hand_man:t2: there @KevinGenus. I’m working my way through Elixir as well. I just found it a few months ago myself though. I had heard some people I follow on Twitter mentioning it here and there but I just never got a chance to pick it up. But now, I have several Elixir books from both Manning and PragProg so I’m trying to dig in and see how it goes. I’m really enjoying the way it is making me think differently.

Wow, control systems. Very complex applications. Wish I had a chance to work with complex systems too.

Sounds like my dream job, back in my employee days! I’ve turned down jobs because they looked like they’d be “same old same old” over and over. (And I’m much more of a back-ender than front-end.)

It’s all fun and games until the management forgets to ask you if you’re willing to learn yet another language and assigns you on a project that’s written in Go this time, and now I’m suffering through every single day and just wishing for this hellish torment to end :sweat_smile:

Hmmm…

scribbles the code in rust
links the rust library into the go and just calls things
code is suddenly faster than then others

Hi there, my name is Nam. Currently, I write Elixir and Java code, and right now I am working on a quite interesting project which is about the language practice community, where people can join and practice their language (speaking skills). The backend I am writing in Elixir and use WebRTC SFU for the video call, if anybody interested, feel free to give me a DM. Thanks.

Oh gosh I wish :rofl: But I think the client would be very unpleasantly surprised once they realized that part of their platform is suddenly and unexpectedly written in an actually good programming language (in my case, I’d go for Elixir… but I suppose I should have a look at Rust at some point as well…)

Lol, I only said rust because it could be linked ‘in’ to a go app so it would actually be hard for them to tell, elixir can’t. ^.^;

Can’t believe I missed introducing myself on this forum. I guess it was on ElixirForum XD.
I’m Vaibhav from India. Currently working as a junior full stack developer. Spends most of the time on frontend dev (mostly React). But for some months, I’ve been working on Flutter also :disappointed_relieved:.
In my free time, reads about Elixir from books. :grin:

That sounds interesting :slight_smile:
Where are you located in Japan, and how did you end up there?
I used to travel to Japan every year (as my wife is japanese) before the borders closed :frowning:

It looks like we had the same reason to visit this country!

I originally came here to be closer to my girlfriend at that time (turning a long-distance relationship into a medium-distance one, shortening the distance from Prague ↔ Kyoto to Tokyo ↔ Kyoto), but once I turned girlfriend into a wife, I moved to her hometown (thankfully company has offices in both Tokyo and Osaka), so now I can enjoy wonderful Kansai summers of deadly heat :rofl:

Sounds Good :smiley:

My Family is Shizuoka-based, I visited Kyoto once. Usually I was in Japan in Spring or Autumn, as my wife is happy to skip the summer, while I quite like the heat :stuck_out_tongue:

Hope to be back there next year…

If you find an Elixir Company, I should move to Japan too haha

Hi all,
I am a developer from Hong Kong.
Originally working as a programmer and now focus on backend mostly.
I am interested in learning different kinds of technology and underlying principles.
However, I am quite busy at work so work on more and more backend and devops this year.
