The Symbiotic Relationship Between Erlang and Elixir Explored
Francesco Cesarini and Andrea Leopardi presented a talk at GOTO Copenhagen 2023 focusing on the symbiotic relationship between Erlang and Elixir. They covered the historical development, unique features, and mutual influences of both languages. Erlang's robustness and scalability, crucial for telecom applications, provided a strong foundation for Elixir. Elixir, in turn, brought modern tooling, developer-friendly features, and broader accessibility, especially for web applications. They addressed the cultural and technical exchanges that have shaped both ecosystems and underscored the importance of community collaboration and learning. The presentation also highlighted how the abstractions in Elixir hide complexity, enabling developers to focus on application logic without deeply understanding underlying concurrency mechanisms.
