    There's a fun new functional programming language out there:

    Looks very interesting. I heard of it but haven't seen much of this language in years. Don't know when I'll get a chance to experiment with it. I'll have to gather up the Erlang resources and such.

    I assume you're a programmer. What languages do you use? Have you used Elixir?

    I don't really consider myself a programmer.

    I mostly fiddle with C and Python.


    I have not got a chance to mess with Elixir yet, but I'll probably do so eventually.

    Nice! I'm mostly a novice in C and Python. I know HTML, CSS, XHTML, Javascript, some PHP.

    Long time developer but not for the last few years. Hadn't heard about Elixir. I'd like to compare it with Java and C++. I wonder if it would have universal appeal?

    It's available for anyone to try and decide for themselves.

    Phoenix Framework for building web applications in Elixir: http://www.phoenixframework.org/

    A lot of people who come from a Ruby and Rails background have really been praising it as something worth looking at. It's built around a functional language that does a lot of things nicely and smooths out some of the criticisms of Erlang's rough edges.
