At Honeycomb.tv, every software engineer can choose one day in a month to contribute towards themselves first and towards the company indirectly. That is, to invest one day into learning something new; let it be a new framework, tool or language.
After covering onboarding 101, setting up all accounts and having a delicious burrito for lunch on Monday; it was time to get my hands dirty. Not with a burrito anymore, rather with learning Elixir.
So today, I arrived in the office with the usual creepy smile, found the official Elixir Getting Started guide and started absorbing knowledge and becoming a real jedi.
I usually tend to ramble about what I learnt, but at this moment my eyes are dictating my focus and limit it to zero. It’s time to sleep (I might come back and fill this blank when my brain gets teased with some sleep).
Bon nuit my brain.
