What we’re about
Almost 29 years ago Erlang was developed by Joe Armstrong, Robert Virding and Mike Williams at Ericsson to solve problems in telecommunication networks.
Erlang describes itself as:
`general-purpose programming language and runtime environment with built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance.`
The years goes by but Erlang somehow never reached the mainstream programmer ...
José Valim brought Erlang to the 21th century. He builds a dynamic, functional programming language on top of Erlang.
Elixir was born.
