I spoke at Better Software 2010, together with Fullo, about speeding up web applications. The talk draws heavily from Steve’s work, but it’s a little bit different from current literature because it tries to organize best practices not as flat list but under macro-areas emerged as “slow parts”. Also, i concluded with my obsession that complexity inherently introduced by performance optimizations should not be dealt with by programmers directly, but by means of automation and abstraction.
Here it is.
