    Thanks for showing me this. Looks really useful, gonna use this the next time I implement some real-time thing.

    It really is, wrote a game calculation/backend engine in elixir. Extremely nice concurrency

    @Marl3x have fun, it took me some time to wrap my head around not using monads for this but when it clicks, it starts making a lot of sense.

    @matt-jd im using scala, should i try elixir in my free time?

    @yellow-dog definitely elixir/erlang both run on BEAM and are incredibly useful especially for backend stuff. When it comes to concurrency they are great and also provide good tools(phoenix for example) for website development
