Everyone knows I stan for Erlang, but for most people I'd sooner suggest Elixir because the tooling and conventions are that much nicer. While I personally prefer Erlang the language, there's a lot more to development than "formulating solutions in source code" and those other things (managing and using dependencies, running tests, running a REPL, hell, even typing that source code) are a fair bit easier in the newer toolchain.
