Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Foundations of Programming: Code Efficiency.
Okay we've gone through a lot of content in the last few chapters.…And I hope what's been obvious is I've…tried to focus on getting the right mind set.…The right strategies and approaches to this.…Rather than any particular technique for one business problem.…Now I want to finish the course by briefly covering a…few places to look when working with specific kinds of applications.…Like Web Server, Web Client, or desktop, or mobile.…And all I'm trying to do here is point out…a few potential efficiency wins that come purely from the kind…of applications they are.…So first with a web application I'm…talking here about the server side of things.…
The low hanging fruit of web server efficiency is caching, one of…the single easiest and biggest improvements…to the responsiveness of a web application.…So, here's the basic idea.…Person one comes to your site and requests the home page.…To provide that response your app then…makes multiple reads to the database, pulls multiple…files off the drive, so we can send it back over the Web.…
Learn to choose the right data types, understand the pitfalls of using high-level languages, and decide where to spend your time. Plus, see how the underlying memory management model may have more of an impact than you realize, and what performance issues you can expect working with databases and web services.
