  1. Hell Flavien. happy to see that the old recipes born in 80′ and before are up to date 🙂 Optimisation will allways be key ! Thanks for this post that reminds this fundamental !

  2. Hello Flavien, I am reading your observations in a slightly different way.
    It isn’t enough to write code, it isn’t enough to think about optimizing your code.
    What you have to do is to bring more transparency onto the table.
    You have to optimize your architecture and to be able to do this, you have to measure, measure and measure again. Monitor when your system is running, put in A/B testing to compare different technologies, run performance tests with synthetic loads (the usual method with reference tests, capacity measurement, load tests and stability tests). You have to involve the whole team/company.
    You have to answer the question: who own performance?
    (Disclosure: I am a performance test consultant at Sogeti Sweden.)
