hi!

the publishers i talked to were not interested, as the topic is too
niche. i took a break, wrote a book about writing command line tools
and designing CLIs (The CLI Book) and will slowly release the content
I had as a series of blogposts

(the projects we will cover are: couchdb, mochiweb and lager)

all three use flamegraphs to find bottlenecks, if i had written the
book i had focussed on other methods, too.

here is the first post, enjoy:
