Product Details

Elixir is an excellent general purpose language. It has features that let you write programs that are more reliable, easier to understand, and highly concurrent. Many of those same capabilities make Elixir an ideal language for embedded systems.

Embedded systems are smaller, special purpose computers used to control hardware. As embedded processors get more sophisticated, the demand for more complex systems grows, such as fridges that double as web browsers and doorbells that double as security cameras and networked intercoms. To support these new requirements, we need higher level languages with more powerful features.

Enter Nerves, Because many of today’s embedded apps are full-featured distributed, concurrent systems, they are ideally matched to functional programming languages like Elixir.
