s/15 years old TCP Service/Elixir HTTP Microservice/g – Backend for e-commerce marketplace Ad Insertion
On this talk, you’ll see the challenges we had at OLX to replace a 15 years old C TCP Service, with lots of memory leaks, using a legacy large database and also unsuitable for maintenance. The new Elixir Microservice had to come without service interruption so there were also rollout challenges with all client platforms like mobile, web and also mass insertion.
