The dedicated elixir developer on our team can take full advantage of the key benefits of Elixir development software — unparalleled scalability, speed, and fault tolerance. With this person’s help, we solve the challenges of major product companies in switching the monolithic, to microservice architecture, and create reliable apps for innovative start-ups.
The entire Elixir code is executed inside light processes that are isolated and exchange information via messages.
Elixir provides supervisors that describe how to restart the parts of your system when something goes wrong, returning to a known initial state that will work for sure. This ensures that your app / platform will never fail.
Functional programming supports a coding style that helps our Elixir development company write short, fast, and clear code.
Elixir comes with a set of development tools. Mix is one of these tools that makes it easy to create projects, manage tasks, run tests, etc. It also features its own package manager called Hex.
Compatibility with Erlang
Elixir runs on Erlang VM, providing developers with full access to the Erlang ecosystem.
Elixir does not belong to any one company, so it is more accessible in terms of its development. This allows individual organizations to hire elixir developers and thus contribute to language improvement by creating use cases.
Elixir is a functional compiled general-purpose programming language. It is built over Erlang, i.e. Elixir is almost identical to Erlang, but is supplemented with "syntax sugar."
Elixir-based software is compiled into byte code for the Erlang Virtual Machine (BEAM) and uses Erlang/OTP to work with process trees. Elixir development outsourcing provides distribution and fault tolerance, soft real-time execution, the possibility of metaprogramming with macros, and protocol-based polymorphism.
Compared to popular interpreted languages for web programming (e.g. PHP, Ruby, or Python), to outsource Elixir development usually provides 5-10 times higher performance while enabling it to work effectively with a large number of web sockets.
