re: Write faster JavaScript VIEW POST


I like that these tips tend more toward use of the right data structures and algorithms (using the terms loosely -- your use of reducer functions, closures, and sets) instead of the usual "replace each with for i" advice.

Often folks who reach for the latter have missed something more fundamental (using your 200k array example -- it could be something like pagination, or caching intermediate values).

FWIW, the places I've had to optimize the most frequently were db queries. On the front end, mostly rendering of large DOM trees and memory usage. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(And I agree with the folks cautioning against premature optimization.)
