On the dynaTrace blog there's a recent post with a few things they've learned about web application development from some of the major companies out there including Zappos and Monster.
For a recent edition of the Swiss Computerworld Magazine we listed our Top 10 Performance Problems as we have seen them over the years when working with our clients. I hope this list is enlightening '" and I've included follow-up links to the blogs to help better understand how to solve these problems.
Performance issues mentioned include:
- Too Many Database Calls
- Too chatty on the remoting channels
- Wrong usage of O/R-Mappers
- Wasteful handling of scarce resources
- Bloated web frontends
