Tracey Onim's article delves into the challenges developers face when working with large data collections in Elixir applications and offers a solution using streams to improve memory efficiency. By contrasting the 'greedy' approach of loading all data into memory with the 'lazy' approach of streams that load data as needed, the article provides a practical guide on implementing streams for processing large datasets in Elixir. The author highlights the memory allocation and performance benefits of the lazy approach using streams over the greedy approach as demonstrated through examples.
