About the Technology

Elixir is an elegant programming language that combines the expressiveness of Ruby with the concurrency and fault-tolerance of Erlang. It makes full use of Erlang's BEAM VM and OTP library, so you get two decades? worth of maturity and reliability right out of the gate. Elixir's support for functional programming makes it perfect for modern event-driven applications.
