What we’re about

Elixir is a super-productive, massively scalable functional programming language that runs on the Erlang Virtual Machine. Applications built with Elixir or Erlang support concurrency, real-time data updates, distribution, fault tolerance, and harness the full power of their host machine CPUs. 

Join us at Elixir HK for meetups about Elixir, Erlang, the Phoenix Framework (for building Elixir apps), and everything else Elixir!

Join the discussion on Facebook:

Websites and teams that currently use Elixir include Pinterest, Bleacher Report, Moz, Undead Labs, and others. The popular messaging service WhatsApp is written in Erlang, which is why WhatsApp is capable of handling over 900,000,000 users while employing only 50 developers.
