Phoenix is a web framework build on Elixir, which runs on the Erlang VM. Why check out another web framework & language?

IDK… the grass is always greener. There are new ideas in new frameworks. Maybe one will fit more with my personal development opinions.

So here we are. So far I like it. Both Elixir and Phoenix. Have only started some very basic hobby apps. Elixir is very Ruby looking, but pretty different in most regards. It’s functional for one big one. And immutable.
