Coming back at you with Nevuletter #6. This time, a refreshed, more consistent design! More details at the end.
Performance can make or break great software. If you’ve got a great app, but it runs at snail’s pace on my device rendering it unusable, I may as well not even have it installed.
Call me impatient, but I don’t like to wait around for no reason. Most users don’t like to wait. It’s well documented that users will drop off quickly if your site or application loads slowly, because “users” are actually real people with real lives, wanting to get through their day.
As a developer, performance can be difficult to maintain especially when there’s other priorities. The speed of your application probably doesn’t rank as one of your highest priorities.
So, how can we write software that's performant and able to scale as inputs grow?
