Performance Junkies Unite!

  • submit to reddit
Every developer and sysadmin has a bit of the 'performance junkie' mentality in them. 

We crave benchmarks, even though we know they all suck at giving us a full picture sometimes.  And sometimes we refuse the more productive languages and frameworks because we cannot accept the 0.2 millisecond hit we'll take for using a technology that is potentially lower in performance.

I understand how you feel.  And now there's a place on DZone where performance junkies can tune and nitpick application and system performance 'till their heart's content.

Wooosh!  The Performance Zone!

I don't even know if you can handle the speeds that your apps will reach after checking out some of the content in this zone. 

We'll provide:

  • Benchmarks on all kinds of performance metrics
  • OS/system performance guides
