I work in a small sized software/web development company. I have gotten into the habit of optimizing prematurely, I know it is evil and promotes bad code, but I have been working at this firm for a ...
Should you sacrifice code readability with how efficient code is? e.g. 3 lines of code into 1 line. I read in Code Craft by Pete Goodliffe that readability is key. Your thoughts?
"Premature optimization is root of all evil" is something almost all of us have heard/read. What I am curious what kind of optimization not premature, i.e. at every stage of software development (high ...
This question is a narrowing-down of these related questions: How much effort should we spend to programming for multiple cores? Concurrency: How do you approach the design and debug the ...
Is there any just-in-time compiler out there for compiled languages, such as C and C++? (The first names that come to mind are Clang and LLVM! But I don't think they currently support it.) ...
How do sites like Facebook and Twitter optimize their sites for massive traffic. Aside from spending big bucks on getting the best servers, what can be optimized in your code to accommodate massive ...
Generally speaking, what type of optimizations do you typically slant yourself towards when designing software? Are you the type that prefers to optimize your design for Development time (i.e., ...
I'd like to see (good) examples of optimizations performed by compilers (static and JIT). Why? To learn what we don't have to optimize ourselves (often leading to better code) To be amazed
I've been here for nearly a month and it seems that people have a tendency to be eager to use the "Premature Optimization is the root of all evil" argument as soon as someone mentions efficiency. ...
A colleague of mine today committed a class called ThreadLocalFormat, which basically moved instances of Java Format classes into a thread local, since they are not thread safe and "relatively ...
