For example, Adobe doesn’t use ratings to establish employee capabilities, feeling that that inhibits creativity and harms how teams work. Even the best examples of culture on this list have detractors. Having great company culture is no longer just an option. Today’s workers consider it as much as they consider salary and benefits. In fact, fantastic company culture is almost expected along with other traditional benefits.

Framework Benchmarks

TechEmpower

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the frameworks data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. For example, we used Sequelize for the JavaScript MySQL tests. For example, servlet-raw is using raw JDBC. Code examples. About What we do Portfolio People Blog Contact. You are viewing a single entry.

Framework Benchmarks Round 9

TechEmpower

For example, a larger number of response headers might mean slightly fewer responses sent per second. For example, we are using MySQL 5.5 For example, platforms that use process-level concurrency scaled to a large number of processor cores quite well. These checks are rigid--failing implementations for using the wrong letter case in their JSON encoding, for example--but ultimately a valuable tool to ensure fairness.

Everything about Java 8

TechEmpower

The List interface is an example. Here are a few examples of lambdas: Comma-separated list of inputs with specified types on the left, a block with a return on the right: (int x, int y) -> { return x + y; }. To give a couple of concrete, valid examples: Comparator c = (a, b) -> Integer.compare(a.length(), b.length()); A Comparator 's compare method takes two strings as input, and returns an int. The sum method in the example above is a terminal operation.

Frameworks Round 4

TechEmpower

For example, in some cases a framework is tested both with and without its ORM (“full ORM” versus “Raw”). We’ve posted Round 4 of our ongoing project measuring the performance of many web application frameworks and platforms. As with previous rounds, the developer community has contributed several additional frameworks for Round 4, bringing the total to 57!

We want this test to require repeated requests to an external service (MySQL or MongoDB, for example) so that we exercise the framework''s data mapping code. For example, on the Java platform, Jackson was used for frameworks that do not provide a serializer. For example, we used Sequelize for the JavaScript MySQL tests. For example, servlet-raw is using raw JDBC. Code examples. You are viewing the first round of web application framework benchmarks.

Think about Performance Before Building a Web Application

TechEmpower

We don’t know just how often this occurs, but judging from the calls we get there are lots of anecdotal examples. These are applications that, for example, expect to see large data or complex algorithmic work from day one. Examples would be applications that match users based on non-trivial math, or make recommendations based on some amount of analysis of past and present behavior, or process large documents on the users’ behalf. “It was running fine.”

Frameworks Round 6

TechEmpower

For example, in the multiple query test, Revel currently considerably exceeds Go. July marks the fourth month of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms. We''ve just posted Round 6, which includes several more developer community-provided framework test implementations: Beego, Dart, Hapi, Jester, Luminus, Nancy, Yaf, Plack, Play-Slick, and Undertow.

Framework Benchmarks Round 12

TechEmpower

For example, Slim's performance in the JSON test and Laravel's performance in the Fortunes test both approximately doubled versus Round 11 with PHP 5. Round 12 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is now available! A race against the clock. Recently, we were notified that the physical hardware environment we have used for Rounds 9 through 12 will be decommissioned imminently.

Kohana, for example, refused to process requests that provided Cookies it was not expecting to receive, responding with "A valid cookie salt is required. We have posted Round 5 of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms. In this round, we''re very happy to announce that a community member has contributed tests for ASP.NET running on native Windows.

EnumSet and EnumMap

TechEmpower

I recommend this approach: Check whether the characteristics of the default spliterator are correct for your collection (often times the defaults are too conservative — for example, EnumSet 's spliterator is currently missing the ORDERED , SORTED , and NONNULL characteristics). The EnumSet.allOf(elementType) method is a great example. Take RegularEnumSet.equals(object) for example. This article discusses java.util.EnumSet. and java.util.EnumMap.

Mangling JSON numbers

TechEmpower

We happen to use JAX-RS in our example code. If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON. JavaScript has the equivalent of double (64-bit floating point) for its numbers, and double cannot represent the same set of numbers as long. If we are not careful, our long is mangled in transit. Consider 2 53 + 1. We can store that number in a long but not a double.

Framework Benchmarks Round 13

TechEmpower

For example, our new physical application server has twice as many HT cores as the previous environment, but the CPUs are older, so there is an interesting balance of higher concurrency but potentially lower throughput. For example: At any given time, we can grab the most recent results and mark them as a preview or final for an official Round. Round 13 of the ongoing Web Framework Benchmarks project is here!

Faster is sometimes more valuable than better.

Berkonomics

Dell is a great example of emphasis upon fast, creating a customized computer in 48 hours or less, bringing in assemblies and components just-in-time to make the assembly line. And in this company example, both quality and speed are the critical factors in competitive advantage. More examples of fast above better. And d oing both well usually wins the day. This is one of those arguable insights, where both sides win.

Haste makes waste; but to lag is to sag.

Berkonomics

A marginal example was the Intel release of the Pentium Pro and new Pentium II processor to rave reviews – until a math professor found an obscure error in the chip’s code that made a rare floating-point calculation error. The waste from haste in this example was in not pre-thinking of enough testing scenarios for a new product. Close. Let’s examine the relationship between time, quality and competitiveness.

Storage worries

TechEmpower

For example, although the risk of being abandoned by a popular NoSQL platform are low, there is virtually no risk of MySQL, Postgres, or Microsoft SQL Server being outright abandoned in the next decade. In the 1980s, high-tech companies stored information about their customers on their sophisticated and high-cost computer equipment. Back then such practices were exceptional except at relatively large companies.
