I started my journey with programming as a hobbyist almost 10 years ago. After 3 years as a hobbyist, I started my Applied Math undergraduate studies. Until this point, I did not have build problems or struggles in general, since the projects/scripts were "simple" in terms of dependencies and I was basically working on them alone.
On the last 2.5 years, I have professionally worked on Desktop projects (Common Lisp ecosystem) and now I am working on a dynamic web application (Clojure/ClojureScript ecosystem).
On this professional phase, I have struggled with build errors. They feel a bit random and different from debugging errors while developing. I miss Common Lisp ecosystem... In ClojureScript I interact with NPM and multiple hassles have emerged.
The skills to solve build problems feel like "a skill they do not teach in college" (this can be even worse considering I did something close to CS, but not CS itself).
I would like to improve on the skill/skills related to build. I am also aware that practice teaches a lot and I have already learnt a few things while struggling with the current projects and "trying to survive".
But, I would like to improve in a structured manner.
Would you recommend some material? A book? A course? A side-project that would teach the low level of build processes?
