Learn how to combine measurements and techniques to develop a strategy for continuously optimizing an application for performance.
- [Instructor] In this concluding chapter,…I'm gonna be briefly covering a number of topics…that both reinforce the tools…and techniques I've been discussing.…We've discussed measurements and logging,…but how can we know what to optimize?…I'm also gonna give a brief introduction to caching,…a performance optimization technique…which is already covered in greater depth in other courses.…Finally, I'll discuss some potential next steps…that you can take in your quest…to master performance tuning and debugging.…In Greek mythology,…a cruel king named Sisyphus was condemned…to forever roll a huge stone up a hill only…to have it fall down again when nearing the top.…
Similarly, optimization can also feel…like an endless Sisyphean task.…Like engineering, the work is never done…as systems continue to evolve,…features are added, requirements change,…and technologies improve.…To keep ahead of the curve and to stay sane,…it's good to have a strategy…for knowing what to optimize.…First of all, make informed decisions.…This involves measuring performance,…
