This article is excellent, and I like that you compare Elixir with Scala and Clojure. Especially as a Data Engineer, I'm constantly thinking about my next language to master besides Python. I fancied Clojure, but it's somewhat still hard to use for many use cases. I see more functional programming…

Excellent write-up Doug, appreciate it! I also see it more and more in my promoted ads. I think they're now trying to get users. I haven't tried either; however, I don't like the proprietary F3 format, or do you know if you could also use Parquet, Delta or other formats?
