Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Web application tools, part of Foundations of Programming: Code Efficiency.
If we're developing web applications, we always…have to keep in our consciousness that…there are substantially different pieces to look…at when working on efficiency or optimization.…First, there's what's going on on the web server side.…What kind of server is this?…Is it a Linux box running, Apache, or Nginx?…Is it a Windows server running IIS? Even a Mac server.…But after that, what kind of server side language are you using?…PHP, Ruby on Rails, ASP.NET, something else?…And additionally, are you using any…pre-written software, like a content management system?…Drupal, Joomla or SharePoint, even WordPress?…And I'm not even including the database in…this picture, which could add all sorts of choices.…
Because all of these will have impacts on your options for efficiency improvements.…But that impact is often in a good way, a way that will make your life easier.…Because if you're creating a specific kind…of site on a commonly available content…management platform, say you're building a multi…author news site on WordPress 3.5 with an average of five posts a day.…
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.
