Structure Vs Optimisation & Algorithm Efficiency
Posted on 1998-08-30
With the advent of Faster Chips etc - should applications developers be concentrating on Program structure Vs Optimising for Speed ?
When first developing a solution to a problem - I develop an algorithm that solves the problem - If this problem is a new problem - I find it extremely difficult at the semantic level to think of more efficient solutions - gets easy once the program is coded - I always just code the first working solution I get - is this the same for you - please contact mw with your thoughts - as I do not use any optimisation techniques - only do if programs are slow I use Vb 5.0 - what do you think then ??
