Elixir: Build scalable and maintainable applications

Elixir is a technology designed for building scalable and maintainable applications at low cost by providing exceptional performance

What is Elixir?

Elixir is a new trending backend technology which promises to significantly development costs by providing exceptional performance. Elixir is the perfect solution for scaling and maintaining applications that handle thousands of users performing millions of concurrent operations. Custom elixir apps will impress even the most demanding clients with their performance.

Elixir is a technology based on Erlang VM - the language created by Ericsson over 30 years ago to handle large numbers of concurrent connections - a must for the telecom industry. Its reliability and performance have already convinced many companies to migrate their services to Elixir. Among them there are: one of the biggest messaging apps - WhatsApp, one of the biggest betting companies on the market - Bet365, a popular social network - Pinterest and major video game developer - SquareEnix.

Elixir is one of the best technologies for high traffic applications. It's also battle-proven as it has over 30 years of tests under the hood. It can be used independently but also as an addition to other technologies adopted in the produt's development. Applications built with the use of Elixir are easier to maintain and scale at lower cost in comparison to the ones developed in other technologies. 

One of the best Elixir frameworks is Phoenix, which focuses on productivity, maintainability and reliability. t also uses WebSockets communication protocol, which is perfect for handling hundreds of thousands real-time connections. Remember, WhatsApp was built using the technology behind Elixir, so you can be sure that your Elixir-based app will be as highly performant and reliable.

Trust is the foundation of great products

Our clients often cooperate with us for many years, launching many products. It's because we always strive to become a trust technological partner, who cares to provide more than just expertise in software development. Thanks to that, we work as an extension of our clients’ teams rather than a mere outsourcing agency.

Netguru make you feel an integral part of the development team. Some agencies build walls between the client and their team, and disappear for weeks without any contact. Netguru offered constant communication, which was very reassuring.

Head of Product at Apps for Good

Working with Netguru's processes has been interesting. I particularly like the organization of daily Slack communications, weekly calls, and project management in Jira, where I could see bugs, sprints, and what tasks were pushed to next week.
