Ideal for medium to big web applications with high scalability and realtime needs.

At Codegram, we are highly invested in Elixir and the Phoenix framework. Being the brain child of José Valim (Ruby on Rails core member), it goes a step further than Rails, but keeping its core values: clean code, maintainability, and developer happiness —all built on top of the battle-tested, decades-old Erlang/OTP virtual machine.

Elixir and Phoenix are perfect for realtime applications designed to handle a large number of concurrent connections including chat applications or bots, online games and collaborative apps.

Elixir’s underlying platform is Erlang —WhatsApp’s own foundation.

Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications.

Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development, embedded software, data ingestion, and multimedia processing domains.

Companies such as WhatsApp, Discord, Facebook or Riot Games are heavy users, allowing them to grow enormous and resilient distributed systems.

What is Elixir/Phoenix good for?

  • Medium to big, ambitious web applications

  • Database-intensive applications

  • Realtime dashboards and metrics

  • Realtime, collaborative user interaction

  • Data Aggregation and Analytics
