I’m so glad to have discovered this awesome community. Thanks for creating it! This is my second post, and apologies for any inadvertent breach of protocol by posting this (a variation of a prior reply to a related topic) as a separate post.
I’m just learning Elixir and have encountered a few pronouncements that Elixir is slow and may not be well suited to heavy data/analytics applications. At the same time I’ve seen references to Elixir conference presentations on Big Data applications. As a result I am seeking calibration on the kinds of math-oriented/analytics apps are well suited to Erlang.
A specific use case: I am considering using Elixir/Phoenix for the backend of a Mint-like web app. The app will principally track budget/actual entries, perform predictive / Monte Carlo / scenario modeling and produce datasets for front-end rendered charts.
I’m excited to learn and apply Elixir to this task; but would like to qualify the suitability of Elixir/Phoenix to this type of app.
