Gleam is a statically typed language for the Erlang virtual machine. The programming language blends functional and object-oriented paradigms, making it easier to write safe and scalable systems. It uses an actor-based model to facilitate concurrent computation by isolating state within independent actors that communicate through message passing. Gleam’s syntax encourages developer productivity with readable code and expressive type system features like union types, pattern matching, and proper tail call optimization. This allows you to build fault-tolerant distributed systems while benefiting from the ecosystem of tools provided by BEAM languages such as Erlang and Elixir.
