What is Elixir? and Let us know facts about Elixir
What is Elixir?In the words of its creators, is “a dynamic, functional programming language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications.” It is a dynamically typed language used for creating distributed systems with lightweight processes.
A programmer can effortlessly write good quality shorter codes that can easily scale, low failure ratio, and automatically recover in Elixir.
Fault Tolerance is a top-notch concept in BEAM. In many programming languages, a bug in one process will cause your entire application to crash and fail. The aim of fault tolerance is to find failures, minimize the impact of failures, and be capable of recovering the failures without human intervention and with minimum downtime.
One of the top features of Elixir is its support for concurrency. Concurrency means events or situations that happen at the same time.
Elixir is a powerful language for creating distributed-style software with lightweight processes that also enable concurrency. It is easy for developers to build applications using Elixir’s functional programming features for any industry.
Scalability is the capacity of a system able to increase or decrease performance and cost in response to changes in application and system processing demands.
Scalability has long and short-term benefits.
Scalability is an essential component of any software development. Prioritizing it from the start leads to low-cost maintenance, user user-friendly, and higher agility.
Developers work to create an excellent product within the client’s time and budget with help of balanced software.
Majorly, companies ignore scalability over cost prioritizing or even declining its importance entirely. Due to ignorance of scalability, even a promising project can completely sink.
Scalability isn’t a “golden parachute”, but a major component that determines the lifetime value of software, and building systems with scalability in mind save time money, and efforts in the long run.
