Elixir & Phoenix has been on my radar for a long time

Time to look into it and I strongly recommend anyone to start with PragDave books or courses and just after to learn how to use the Phoenix framework.

even a "slow" server side language like Ruby is fast enough for the majority of cases.

I can agree with you on that any language can server server side rendering fast enough for a lot of use cases.

But for the ones that defend the use of Javascript frameworks due to faster speeds, specially on busy servers, than the solution is Elixr, because is the only language built from scratch to be concurrent, distributed and fault tolerant.

To note that I agree that full Javascript frameworks have their use cases, unfortunately the majority of the times they are not the best tool for the job... but they are a trend, thus it looks bad if one thus not go with the flow ;)
