We talk with Angelika Tyborska about the history of exercism.io, her involvement, the issues addressed in v2 and what’s new and cool in the soon to be released v3. We cover the Elixir track, her work as a maintainer, the journey of a student and how people can help as mentors. We also hear about the “fun” she had creating a maze generator and more!
