Podcast: ThinkingElixir 128 - Speedy like a Bandit

Episode 128 of Thinking Elixir. The Phoenix 1.7 announcement blog post mentioned the ability to swap out Cowboy for another webserver like Bandit. We talked with Mat Trudel to learn more about his pure-Elixir webserver and find out how it works with Phoenix. We learn Bandit can be up to 5x faster by narrowly focusing on turning a request into a Plug connection and much more!

I’ve really enjoyed this one and what a great origin story for Bandit. Looking forward to digging into the codebase and using it on projects. Thanks!
