The BasicsWhat is Elixir?
Elixir is built upon Erlang, a language developed by Ericsson in the mid-1980s for telecom switches. Today it is estimated that 90% of all Internet traffic goes through routers and switches controlled by Erlang.
Elixir takes a great language and makes it even greater. With its elegant syntax, easy-to-use package manager, and powerful macro support, a developer can build world-class applications in a fraction of the time.Once you start using Elixir, its hard to go back.
