Since several months, I started to learn Elixir and Phoenix. Maybe the only positive point of the Covid-19, I had more free time.
Why Elixir ? Because of my Ruby background for more than 10 years now and my twitter timeline that suggested some posts about. And the interest in learning a functional programming language, something fresh in my day to day routine.
Well, … my first post in english, that’s truly difficult for french people as we are well known to be bad at learning foreign languages.
Anyway, a few months ago I began to work on a web app for a call center, that is supposed to manage the medical appointments of their clients (medicals practices). I first used Ruby on Rails in its last iteration (5) really interested in the new ActionCable that allows you to use websockets out of the box. And it did the job. But painful.
Even if the work of DHH and the contributors is awesome…
