Don’t Fall Into the Trap of Premature Optimization of Your New Ecommerce Project
“Premature optimization is the root of all evil” - Donald Knuth
When we want to speed up our application, first we need to know the largest bottlenecks and the most critical features that must be optimized. In this talk, we’ll cover the story of a B2B online store with more than 500k items in stock we’ve built. We’ll talk about the architecture decisions, introduce Gatling tool for performance measuring, and what we did with the results. If we’d started with caching and micro-optimizations during the development, we might still be developing.
