I have worked in Java, PHP, Python, and C# for developing simple websites. This is my first experience working with Elixir/Phoenix and so far it is very promising. I am creating a dating website and hope to launch it in the next few months.
I want to know from y’all, is Elixir/Phoenix a good choice for a dating site?.
My only concern is if I could get developers to help maintain the site in the near future?
You’re probably right, it’s too tempting to encourage anyone to join the community.^^
I am one of those who chose Elixir, not because of the many advantages that more experienced people can cite, but because I have a lot of fun writing it. And I think that matters too. If Elixir is no worse than another language for a certain job, then I take it. It’s really not fun to work with a language we do not like. But I admit that we do not always have the choice.
@phunsukh1 grindr, a dating app, uses elixir/phoenix as a backend. User presence (who is online), for instance, it’s way easier to implement than in many other ecosystems. They have a talk in youtube I believe. Whatsapp uses erlang, elixir’s secret sauce… I think you’d be in good company
