So may good responses here, and yet I still feel compelled to drop my small opinion.

Phoenix as a framework makes it possible for me to be a one-man developer for the first time in a decade.

My last major project was primarily in node. It’s fine, but so many issues, particularly with the fact that all numbers are floats (don’t tell me “typescript”). I’m not nearly as productive in JS as I am in elixir. Elixir’s declarative nature clicks with my brain in a way that no imperative language does.

My next language will be Rust because that seems to be a good place to go for a compiled language. I’m the boss at work where it comes to tech, and all my work projects are being migrated to Elixir.
