Can I say all of the above
Something that hasn’t been mentioned yet, and something I really REALLY love is how Elixir and Phoenix make things like the Replaceable Component Architecture (where you can build your app as a series of components) not just possible, but easy - to the point where it feels like a very natural fit. I think in time this is going to be a huge draw.
I also love how you can have more than one Phoenix layer in your app (yup, my mind was blown when I discovered that too!!)
There’s so many things like this that I’m really excited about. The funny thing is, it was the speed and scalability that drew me to Elixir, yet it’s all this other stuff that I never really gave much thought to that has got me really hooked.
Thank you Chris and José and all of you who have contributed to pushing Elixir and Phoenix towards these awesome things and of course for everything else you do too
