    > SQL doesn't compose all that well.

    On that topic, I really enjoy working in Elixir because Ecto [1] lets you write "SQL" with Elixir's composable functional syntax. It sits somewhere between "the language is compiled to SQL" and ORM. The Ruby-esque syntax took some getting used to, but once I was past that hurdle my productivity skyrocketed. It's not 100% feature complete compatibility with all the different SQL dialects, but most of what you'll need is there.

    Project mention: Use the new Enum type in Ecto 3.5 | dev.to | 2021-01-05

    Postgres and MySQL have the ability to create enum types that can be used for columns and will validate them at the data layer rather than the application layer. This means that your data store would be protected from bad values. For a long time, the EctoEnum library has been the best way to set up custom enum types for Postgres:
