I first came upon Elixir in 2013 (wow, it’s been 8 years?). I was looking at Erlang and a friend of mine said that there’s this new language being built on the same VM, you should look at it. I gave it a whirl and the rest is history, as they say. I’ve written it on and off, sadly never professionally, resulting in lots of stuff, some even in production. Elixir gave me a new joy in programming.
None of this would be possible without the hard work of people I’ve never seen. People who have received nothing from me but have decided to give me the tools to work with anyway. To help me avoid mistakes. To ease my experience. To expand my view of programming beyond what I could have thought of myself.
For this I want to thank you, as it’s the least I can do.
