I finished that, and someone suggested I become a mentor on there, but I don’t feel confident enough in my Elixir-fu to take that on. If you like, I could try to mentor just you on there and see how that goes. PM me if you want to work out details.

Exercism.io Seems like a good way to learn and practice Elixir. I will try it.
On the other hand, creating a library (with Elixir) to access through json-rpc to Odoo ERP

Trying to understand something about devops by learning about Gitops :cowboy_hat_face: I started to evangelize a tool called ArgoCD and am totally enamored by it. As a dev, I feel like I need to bend my mind a bit to learn deployment concepts and this is fun :smiley_cat:

A post was split to a new topic: Are there any good resources of using CQRS/EventSourcing in an Elixir/Phoenix application?

Well it’s been a while, but thanks to pandemic I worked from home, and had a new baby, so my free time was utterly non-existent! My own projects languished so hard… But now I’m back working in person, the little one is becoming self-sufficient, and I’ve learned I hate Rust’s implementation of async… ^.^;

Reading Concurrent Data Processing in Elixir by @svilen at the moment. I love his writing style and the use of flowcharts to illustrate concepts.

I finished going through the book on Functional Web Development with Elixir, OTP and Phoenix and now slowly going through a newly purchased book on Phoenix LiveView. I think I’m addicted to purchasing PragProg books on Elixir!
