Hey Peter! Thanks for the feedback.
I’d say it entirely depends on the priority of that. As I mentioned in this article, I judge what to learn next by what can have the most impact in my career. For me, I’ve been looking at moving into a full-stack developer role so learning Elixir/Phoenix made a lot of sense.
If I had a current job as a frontend React developer, there might be more important things to focus on before jumping to a whole new language. However, this made a lot of sense for me since I’m unemployed and able to test out the waters to see what I want to do as a career.
In short, don’t get tossed to and fro with every new technology that you can learn but learn a technology that makes the most sense in your current context and goals.
