About this Episode

We talk with Digit and Quinn Wilton about the Burrito project. It wraps up Elixir to a single binary, enables cross-platform builds, and uses Zig to help while also enabling NIFs! They share how the security focused software they create uses this to run in isolated environments where Elixir can’t be installed. A really cool project that can be used for one-off scripts, long running CLI applications with full OTP features and more. They share some of the challenges they had to overcome in creating Burrito and how it being OpenSource helps the company and their project.
