Discord has been scaling with Elixir. Now with 5 million concurrent users, CTO of Discord, Stanislav Vishnevskiy, talked about how it came to be. He also said “Elixir has proven to be a great experience.” The article primarily focuses on production issues they ran across and how they fixed them. The Erlang Virtual Machine and ecosystem have comically good operations tooling. Come for the concurrency and pleasant macros, stay for the 30 year legacy!

Elixir is a lot of fun to write. It’s refreshing coming from a super OO language back to a functional language that has truly pragmatic frameworks like Phoenix. Get started with our free screencast series on Elixir and Phoenix.

JetBrains did a survey of over 5,000 developers to find out the ‘State of the Developer Ecosystem.’ They found that Java is the most popular primary language, Javascript is the most used overall, and Go was found to be the most promising. They have some extremely interesting finds like 65% of developers are gamers, and only 6% of developers get over 8 hours of sleep. Take a look at all of the results. I feel like there is a bit of a survivorship bias in this survey though. Of course JetBrain’s network is dominated by Java/python/php devs, that’s mainly what their platform is used for. If we (DailyDrip) did a survey it’d be Elixir/Elm dominating (aka Hipster Languages), Judging by other sources like TIOBE the spreads are much different.
