First of all, I’m a Civil Engineer, but November will be my first year as a developer.
During this year, I have readed a lot of Erlang and Elixir books, visited the Erlang and Elixir forum pretty much every day, looked at various projects on Github, contributed to some projects (most of the contributions were to Zotonic), and I’m doing some libs as a form of study (the last one is called eel).
But I’m in some doubts about what to do next. This year is going fast, and I want to prepare myself for the next year.
In your opinion, what is essential to be a good developer? In special for Erlang/Elixir? Maybe I start a degree in Sofware Engineering, Computer Science, or some other? Some good BootCamp you could point me? I’m not English fluent, maybe I focus on improving this? What does a company expect from an Erlang/Elixir developer?
I’m highly professional, focused, study every day, and really wanna move up. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think some others languages can actually be better to start a career in this area, but my idea is to continue using this powerful thing called BEAM.
I’d be glad if someone could give me a north.
