What got you interested in Elixir?

Two things:

  1. I've been playing with Erlang since about 2010 and was always interested in its runtime.
  2. Jose Valim was a very prominent figure in the Ruby on Rails community before he started Elixir and I always admired his work. Getting to pair program with him for a bit at Ruby X Elixir Conf Taiwan definitely was a bit of fanboy moment for me.

Thanks! It was a great way to get introduced to some parts of the Erlang VM.
