I don't really see a "vs" between those 2 languages. After all, José Valim was a Ruby developer (and book author) before he developed Elixir. Its syntax is almost identical to Ruby and even Phoenix feels a lot like Rails.

That's exactly what makes it a vs comparison. Elixir was built based on José's experience with maintaining and consulting on Ruby apps, with the explicit intent of fixing the warts and inefficiencies that they kept having to work around.
