Taming the Resource Tiger
Comments are closed.
Great all around talk.
Extremely knowledgeable presenter who used a great presentation technique to really drive home points about the pain levels that can be caused by small code decisions that you didn't realize.
Explains how code decisions impact resource usage and have real-world impact.
Encouraged us to stay clear of array_map and to prefer iteration, being mindful that there is a math problem:
36 bytes for each array (in php7) + the data in it, subtracted from available memory.
Rapid-fire talk by a passionate, extremely well-informed speaker on optimizing for not-assuming-the-laws-of-server-physics-don't-exist, which happens to be one of my favorite topics. Explained several cases of what's slow/memory-inefficient, why it's slow/memory-inefficient, and what you can do about it, plus a call to action at the end of making your software maintainable/less of a headache for the next person to interact with it. Great all around.
I am a junior when it comes to understanding the internal working of the language.
I always used to wonder why my huge arrays took so long to process, I have been ignorant and thought that it is something that I have to deal with PHP. Your talk was an eye opener and I now learned something that I can use in my work and show off. Love you Elizabeth.
