Show Notes

In this episode Simon Zelazny joins the mix to talk about his experience in scaling an Elixir and Phython based service to meet a once-in-a-blue-moon demand scenario. The panel and him discuss the challenges in finding the relevant bottlenecks in non-trivial software systems - and BEAM applications in particular - and what options there are to fix those.

They also discuss pragmatism in the context of software development, and how we as software developers are not paid to write pretty code but to solve business problems, which might also mean to choose NOT to build on top of the BEAM, if circumstances demand it.
