CHAPTER 6: Planning for Performance and Reliability

C H A P T E R  6

Planning for Performance and Reliability

This topic has always been a bit of a groaner. Everyone knows the importance of planning (who hasn’t heard the adage “failing to plan is planning to fail”?) but no one really wants to do it. Let’s face it, planning is simply not as fun as writing code. It’s very easy to come up with reasons why the planning can wait.

The problem with this approach is that by the time you start thinking that planning might have actually been quite a good idea, you’re already miles out to sea and heading off into even deeper water. So deep, in fact, that a sign proclaiming, “Here be monsters!” would not only not go amiss but might even be considered mandatory. Now you’re thinking that starting off with a plan might have been a swell idea. But if you’re not entirely sure where it all went wrong, it probably won’t be all that obvious what you can do to fix it.
