Wow the Elixir Phoenix framework gives you a dashboard when you start your server, this is miles away from what I experience in JavaScript.

@movonw @thomasorus the language is very good, the documentation also and the community friendly! I don't know how it compares with Ruby on Rails (besides performance and scaling where it's better) though.

@kototama @movonw The few moments I tried I was a bit confused, but that's good! I think it's time for me to try something new.

@thomasorus you can always ask me or on There is a tutorial in the docs and a book from the pragmatic programmer publisher.

@kototama @thomasorus the biggest difference for me is functional vs objective paradigm, and pattern matching which is used a lot in Elixir to structure program flow and data access.
