Elixir is a modern and expressive functional programming language that delivers the productivity and "developer joy" of Ruby and all of the power of Erlang. Elixir was designed to take the best language qualities of Ruby, Clojure and Erlang. Elixir code runs on the Erlang VM and compiles to the same binary format (BEAM file) as Erlang, so it has zero-penalty access to Erlang libraries including OTP. Just like Erlang, it supports hot code loading and scales beautifully (scales-up to many cores, scales-out to many machines). What does it look like? What are the pieces and the tools?
