Most websites are built with high-level languages like Ruby. Developers can always optimize their code for improved performance. Yet, even with top-notch optimization practices, what if your website still lags? How could WASM help improve the performance (time and speed) of your Ruby apps? Web Assembly is a technology that allows developers to compile code written in languages other than Javascript and run it on the web browser.

Performance metrics in computer science are typically based on time and space complexity. Time complexity deals with the application's execution time, while space complexity pertains to the memory it consumes during execution. For Django, performance relates to the speed at which a server processes user requests and returns results. The quicker the response, the better the user experience.

The Python web framework Django is an excellent choice for building performant web apps. Disqus, Pinterest, and Instagram are all built on a Django foundation. Django offers simplicity, flexibility, reliability, scalability, and all the tools you need to build a web app from admin to authentication to ORM. But this “batteries included” approach has disadvantages. It can hide a lot of the true complexity of an app from developers. Django ORM is a great example.

Lambdas are a powerful feature of the Ruby language. They allow you to wrap logic and data into a portable package. In this post, we’ll cover how and when to use lambdas. You'll also learn about the difference between lambdas and Procs, and the performance profile of lambda functions. The code examples have been tested with 2.6 and 2.7 and should work with most modern Rubys. Use the links below to skip ahead in the tutorial.

In this article, we will see SOLID principles and how to implement those principles while building a software application. Robert. C. Martin (popularly known as Uncle Bob) introduced the SOLID principle. Later, Michael Feather re-orders the principle to form the acronym. It helps to implement better code design, maintainability, and extendability.

In this world of technology, meaningful and understandable software can be controlled easily. While designing the application's architecture, loose coupling between the services is necessary, meaning services should behave as a standalone application. This kind of architecture is called service-oriented architecture because, in this architecture design, we mainly focus on designing separate services and using them to make the whole application.

3 Key Benefits of switching to ScoutAPM over New Relic n+1 queries, Memory Bloat tabs show you easy performance enhancements.

Monitoring for the modern development team.

No developer ever said "I hope I get to spend all day hunting down a performance issue". When the unavoidable happens, The Scout platform is focused on finding the root cause of performance problems as quickly as possible.

Scout is monitoring for fast-moving dev teams like us. We leverage the tools that help us get big things done - Github, PaaS services, dynamic languages, frequent releases - to build a tailored monitoring platform for modern teams.

Scout continually tracks down N+1 database queries, sources of memory bloat, performance abnormalities, and more.

Get back to coding with Scout.
