Abstract: This Masters Thesis compares Elixir, Go and JavaScript (Node.js) as programming language candi- dates for writing concurrent RESTful webservice backends. First we describe each of the languages. Next we compare the functional concurrency characteristics of the languages to each other. Finally we do scalability testing for each of the languages. Scalability testing is done using the Locust.io framework. For testing purposes we introduce for simple REST-api implementations for each of the languages. Result from the tests was that JavaScript performed the worst of the languages and Go was the most verbose language to program with.
