Three Ways to Debug Code in Elixir

I find the above really elegant. It's correct, the special case for "0" is very explicit, and if you try a negative number, Elixir will simply be unable to match the given problem to a function definition (n < 0), which makes more sense than throwing "BadArgument" errors/exceptions.
If you really want to just solve problems, I advise sticking with Python, there's nothing wrong with it. Most languages also provide a lot of functional concepts, I'm sure Python is no exception (with some libraries). Be prepared that functional languages require you to think differently, but it is really fun to do things in a functional way!
What are some alternatives?
