What is Elixir
Elixir is a general-purpose, dynamic, concurrent, and functional programming language designed to build large-scale sites and applications.
Elixir runs on the BEAM Virtual Machine. It is built on top of the Erlang Programming Language that was influenced by Clojure, Erlang, and Ruby.
The Elixir programming language was developed by José Valim. It first version of the elixir was released in 2011.
The File extension of the elixir is .ex, and .exs.
