Performance - When, What and How

Rails Israel Conference, Monday, November 12, 2012, 10:10

Rails performance is a complicated topic. There are many levers to pull,
buttons to push and knobs to turn.

What is performance and how is it different from scalability? Why performance
matters? When it matters and when it doesn't?

Each millisecond you scratch off your app makes your users like it more, but
it's very easy to dive into performance optimization and loose the big picture.
