Mat is the author of the Thousand Island and Bandit libraries, meant to be drop-in replacements for Ranch and Cowboy.

They are both built-in pure Elixir to be very fast, standards-compliant, and readable. We talked about networking, how Thousand Island manages TCP socket connections for you, how Bandit translates between that socket and Plug, and the future of Bandit in supporting websockets, at which point it will be production-ready for Phoenix applications.
