    I recently added Lucky to TechEmpower benchmarks and was looking around for articles/videos about what other frameworks are doing to perform so well. I came across this really good talk by Jeremy Evans called Optimization Techniques Used by the Benchmark Winners. Instead of carrying away a list of changes to make to Lucky, I came away with a fascination for how he designed his framework, Roda. Specifically, I loved the idea of entirely using plugins to extend and add behavior. If you ever get the chance to look at the source code for the framework you'll notice that the classes are almost empty. All the behavior is added in through plugins. I really wanted to see if this was possible in Crystal.
