Why we love Elixir
- Elixir is fast, like really, really fast. Take a look at elixir v rails to find out just how fast.
- A lot of us started with or know Ruby/Rails. Syntactically, Elixir/Phoenix are quite close, so adopting it was pretty easy.
- Being a functional language, it is easier for us to debug code because the code is explicitly housed in modules.
- Immutability. Functions do not mutate data in your variables, which lessens the headache of wondering where your variables may have changed.
