Discussion on: Concurrency in Go vs Erlang

Update for 2021
Erlang now has jit compilation since otp24 which narrows the speed gap (or perceived gap anyway)

Erlang's gc model avoids the problems that go suffers from which can affect performance.

Erlang has a much cleaner interface to C or Rust or Zig for performance work

So if performance Is important, I would choose Erlang over go any day if the week.
