re: Ruby vs Elixir VIEW POST


Ruby is an OOP language, Elixir is functional. I find it much easier to test and reason about a functional app (and I work on two Phoenix apps and one legacy Rails app at $work).

On top of that Elixir (and most library) documentation is first-class, and the core team is super responsive to doc PRs. The Elixir community is helpful and welcoming. I would strongly encourage people to take a test-drive and make up their own minds.

Oh, and if nothing else, I see lots of references to Rails shops actively converting to Elixir/Phoenix. 😀
