DockYard is pleased to support the Erlang Ecosystem Foundation (EEF) in its mission to advance innovative technologies developed with Erlang and Elixir.

Elixir, Erlang, and other BEAM-based technologies can help forward-thinking companies transform their digital presence with sophisticated architecture supporting fast, scalable, and reliable software and web applications optimized to perform in real time. As a sponsor of the EEF, DockYard is committed to helping the foundation build awareness of the Elixir ecosystem, foster growth in the open-source community, and promote innovative software and web development projects.

Businesses in industries from telecommunications, eCommerce, and financial services to healthcare, manufacturing, and media and entertainment demand advanced technologies to solve complex business problems. Engineering teams must deliver applications that perform at the highest levels with flexibility, reliability, and elegance. Elixir — built on top of Erlang, a platform already used by multi-billion-dollar corporations — does just that.

The Erlang Ecosystem Foundation has created working groups so members can actively contribute to libraries, tools, and documentation that strengthen the Elixir development environment and can be used in common among software engineers to create versatile infrastructure. DockYard is thrilled to participate in those groups and contribute to Elixir frameworks and toolsets.

Companies turn to Elixir to build fast, concurrent, fault-tolerant apps for the web and for embedded systems. Paired with a powerful web framework such as Phoenix, there’s no need to compromise between productivity and performance. Learn more about DockYard’s work with Elixir technologies.
