I’ve chosen Elixir (and Phoenix framework) for my startup because it offers as good if not better productivity than Rails, its scalability exceeds that of Node and unlike Java or Go it is architected for fault-tolerance. Also, the channels presence feature being built into the framework is a huge work-saver.
The down side is it appears that AWS doesn’t support Elixir or even Erlang in its docs. Do you know of any guides for getting set up with Elixir/Phoenix on AWS? I’m an experienced web dev but have little experience with Amazon’s offering.
