Since I started reading articles about Functional Programming, more and more Haskell articles show up in my feeds. Since this is a language that has been on my list for a very long time, I decided now was a great time to try and learn it.
The difference is that I put out some feelers for somebody else in my area who would want to learn with me.
Since my last post, I have spent a fair amount of time getting familiar with Elixir. I did a little work through The Daily Drip. That didn't last long, though. I didn't feel like I could work at it at a decent pace to justify the monthly cost.
Next I moved on to a book that I bought on a whim: The Ray Tracer Challenge. This is a great book for learning about a new language. I have two false starts under my belt. (Both ended with bugs that I have yet to figure out).
That's OK with me because I did learn a lot about working with Elixir. Since the early part of the year, life sort of got in the way and I lost my drive to try it again. I dabbled with Elm a bit, can't quite get in the headspace to really give it a go. Also, I'm waiting for the Elm book I'm reading to be more complete.
So, long story short, I have learned more Elixir (and a little Elm), but I don't have much to show for it.
