Elixir is awesome, it's like Ruby and Clojure having sex on an Erlang waterbed. However it still is maturing at a quick clip so I haven't done any production work in it.

But since Jose Valim is probably my favorite developer alive, I have faith that Elixir will do for Erlang what Rails did for Ruby.

I know it sounds like I'm comparing Rails (a framework) to Elixir (a language), but what I am comparing is a way of bridging-in Joe/Jane Developer.
