Question for those experienced in Rust and Elixir (re productivity)

This is a question whoever is experienced with both Elixir and Rust. I know there’s a few in the community now.

My question is, for you, do you think it’s possible to be as productive in Rust as you are in elixir?


Yes. Maybe not as fast on initial coding, but in overall upkeep and maintenance absolutely yes. However it all of course depends on what you do as well, the BEAM has a fantastic multi-server and distribution story that you mostly have to build in rust.


Yes. However, ‘productive’ is a very subjective term. The kind of things I use Rust for and the kind of things I use Elixir for are very different.
