Interest in the Elixir programming language continues to build. Increasingly, we see it used in serious projects and hear feedback from developers who find its Actor model to be robust and very fast. Elixir, which is built on top of the Erlang virtual machine, is showing promise for creating highly concurrent and fault-tolerant systems. Elixir has distinctive features such as the Pipe operator, which allows developers to build a pipeline of functions as you would in the UNIX command shell. The shared byte code allows Elixir to interoperate with Erlang and leverage existing libraries while supporting tools such as the Mix build tool, the IEx interactive shell and the ExUnit unit-testing framework.

We continue to see a lot of excitement from people using the Elixir programming language. Elixir, which is built on top of the Erlang virtual machine, is showing promise for creating highly concurrent and fault-tolerant systems. Elixir has distinctive features such as the Pipe operator, which allows developers to build a pipeline of functions as you would in the UNIX command shell.

Elixir is a dynamic, functional, homoiconic programming language built on top of the Erlang virtual machine with a powerful macro system that makes it ideal for building Domain Specific Languages. Elixir has distinctive features such as the Pipe operator that allows developers to build a pipeline of functions like you would in the UNIX command shell. The shared byte code allows Elixir to interoperate with Erlang and leverage existing libraries while supporting tools such as the Mix build tool, the Iex interactive shell and the ExUnit unit testing framework. It is a practical alternative to Erlang for building DSLs.
