  • What makes you like working with Elixir?
    Elixir is useful as Ruby: it has nice tooling and ecosystem, wonderful documentation and extremely friendly community. Also Elixir has all benefits which came from the Erlang world because it’s based on BEAM virtual machine. It allows to create more robust and performance applications and very good error handling possibilities.
