This week, I got introduced to Elixir programming language and I wrote a function to calculate the factorial of a number.

I expressed my surprise at how you can calculate the factorial of 10_000 very fast on the post How to Calculate the Factorial of 10_000 - Elixir.

This is not possible in many other languages by the way... So it was a good lesson!

Sounds really cool. I haven't done any Elixir myself, but I know the folks at Infinite Red led by Jamon Holmgren do quite a bit of it. I found a brief post from him about moving to Elixir, shift.infinite.red/the-rails-doctr....

He's on DEV, but not really active at @jamonholmgren . He Tweets a lot, so give him a follow there too if you want.
