The dwyl team went “all-in” on Elixir back in 2016 and are often asked if they would make the same choice again. Here’s the TLDR of their answer:
The question of “Which Programming Language” is one we ask ourselves fairly regularly, and is the reason that lead us to discover and decide on using Elixir in 2016. We periodically survey the “up-and-coming” languages like Kotlin, Julia, Lua, etc. and keep concluding that our choice of Elixir is the one we would make again right now. Elixir is the “full package” from idea to deployment!
