Which three languages? Elixir is definitely [opinionated] better than Ruby by all means.

Elixir, Erlang, and Ruby. I assumed based on your comment that you enjoyed some aspect of each one. If that’s the case, I’m just curious what those aspects might be.

The main are:

Ruby: DSL, metaprogramming abilities in general, method chaining and how enumerables are designed.
Erlang: simplicity, how VM and OTP are designed, ease of concurrency, hot code reload, messages as the process intercommunication.
Elixir: better metaprogramming abilities than in Ruby, more concise syntax than Erlang, plus all the above—the best from both languages.
