Smart choice for web and app development projects
Developing software that is fast, allows for millions of connections, scales easily and is extremely fault tolerant? Elixir might be the ideal choice for your web and app development projects, especially if you love Ruby-like syntax.
Elixir is a relatively new functional programming language - but one that is certainly gaining traction across technology houses. Functional programming (vs. imperative programming) can be very useful to businesses where their software needs to perform many operations all at once, as the coding style lends itself to concurrent operations. Code in functional programming is more concise, leading to shorter development times and easier debugging (saving you $).
Elixir was first released in 2011 and is based on the Erlang BEAM virtual machine, originally designed by Ericsson for use in telephony systems, where software requires real time communications, high fault tolerance with no zero-downtime code updates. These qualities of Erlang persist in Elixir, and are some of the key advantages of Elixir.
