Elixir RAM and the Template of Doom

Elixir RAM and the Template of Doom by Evan Miller.

From the post:

I will attempt to convince you, in two lines of code, that Elixir is more interesting than any programming language you’ve ever used.

Are you ready? Don’t worry, the code doesn’t involve quicksort, or metaprogramming, or anything like that.

Here we go.

Sorry, no spoilers, but I can say that use of strace or dtruss figure in explaining some amazing performance characteristics.

It reminds me of the sort of post I expect from Julia Evans. It’s that good.

If you are not interested in possibly slashing CPU and RAM usage, move onto another post. If you are, spend some time with Evan’s post.

I’m thinking the smaller the footprint the better. Yes?
