The only con is it works under windows server but Microsoft is working on it (core).

If the language requires IDE to work with, it’s a clear sign the language is limping.

If one just wants to “land a Job,” they deserve to work with such languages as C#, PHP and Java.

If one loves what they are doing and values the language pleasure to work with, ruby is hell alive (although I have never seen anybody who tried Elixir and wanted to continue to work with Ruby.)
