comment Is premature optimization really the root of all evil?
Yes. totally agree. It first has to be measured. There is no way you know where the bottlenecks are until you test something end to end and measure each of the steps.

That ThreadLocalFormat, had it stayed in the code, would probably never have left, because everytime someone tried to understand it their head would explode. Having something complex like that because it might save 2 milliseconds is a complete waste of time and damaging to the software in terms of understandability.

comment Are long hours and no benefits the norm for a junior programmer?
Being forced to work long hours as a programmer is a joke - get into contracting as quickly as you can. Getting paid per hour is an insurance mechanism against companies that want to f###k up your life.
