New year 2017 starts with a bang!
I said I was not going to spend any more of my time doing Ruby stuff, but I couldn’t pass the opportunity to read this book, I did not know for sure if it was good or bad, not a lot of information out there, but what could go wrong if I read it?
I enjoyed the book a lot, I’m surprised is not more popular, maybe Ruby developers don’t care too much performance? Not sure. The key takeaways from this book are the following:
Overall great book, I really hope all Ruby developers find it sooner than later because it covers a lot of great/fundamental topics and includes clear explanations describing how to properly benchmark code by using all the available tools. Nice.
