Great tutorial on how speeding up Erlang with linkedin C code. But hopefully you won't have to do it because it makes your software hard to maintain and the C part might crash your program. But if you have to interface with C, then first check whether a C-node (as for example done in ErlyCairo) has enough performance, a C-node uses it's own memory space and doesn't crash your Erlang program, in case things go wrong. But if your C code is very robust, and you really need the performance, Joel's tutorial is a great introduction to that topic.
