Ruby: The one I miss. Elixir: the one I wish I knew.

Damn you JS, damn you!

Same but explained : I loved my time in Ruby on Rails and I have been trying really hard to find back some code quality I had in Ruby. I even tried Opale for JS. The thing is, both my work and personnal projects will involve quite some JS and not that many people know the language…

In theory, I have nothing but love for Elixir. In a perfect world, I choose to be an Elixir master every day. But time is lacking, the chance that it remains niche are high… I can't afford to write programs just for myself.
