        Care to give some more concrete examples? Every non-erlang developer that I’ve spoken with spouts about the syntax as their main reason for enjoying Elixir over erlang.

        It takes about 60 seconds to get used to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

            Hey downvoters, as @355E3B also says, comments abound online praising Elixir simply because its syntax is like Ruby.

So, I’m not sure how me saying I’m sick of something can be “incorrect” - I’m the one being sick of it, so I think I know ;-)
