Oh wow Elixir, you are so fancy and beautiful. Where have you been hiding! Can i take you out some time? Maybe a small project? 🤓

    It's alright, will never be crazy about dynamic langs. Have too many trust issues with not being able to right size numeric types.

    @SortOfTested Ah yes, i completely overlooked that aspect. 🤔

    @SortOfTested Elixir + Rust is a great combination apparently

    Also I kinda get why Erlang didn't go for static typing, it makes Erlang style pretty annoying to type especially with the tools they had back then (how do you even type message passing? Session types are fairly new and not common outside PL research)

    Though modern Erlang does have type hints.

    It's just the is_primitive that makes it annoying for me. I don't like losing static analysis and having to revert to "figure this shit out" even under pattern matching.
