Elixir and Phoenix will continue to soar

Okay, I’m calling it. Elixir and Phoenix will be the hip programming language and web framework of 2017. Kinda like CoffeeScript in 2014, expect to see it everywhere.

The Erlang VM is a tried-and-tested (and dare I say, cool) piece of technology. It’s almost twenty years old. It’s blazing fast, and has awesome support for concurrency. Built upon this is Elixir – a relatively new functional programming language designed for productivity.

Despite the relative youth of Elixir, it’s already got an active community who build awesome shit around it. One such example is Phoenix – a web framework for Elixir that’s ideal for sites with lots of concurrent users.

There’s a lot of enthusiasm for these two technologies, and they’re quickly gaining momentum. It’ll be interesting to see how they continue to evolve throughout 2017, and what developers build with them.
