Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Performance Zone (June 20 to June 27). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. The Fourth Digital Wave: The Age of Application Intelligence

Welcome to the fourth era of digital. The first three periods or ages or phases — call them what you like — were each defined clearly by transformative events.

2. Benchmarking C++, Python, R, etc.

The other day Travis Oliphant pointed out an interesting paper: A Comparison of Programming Languages in Economics. The paper benchmarks several programming languages on a computational problem in economics.

3. Optimization Killers

"In V8 there is no interpreter but there are 2 different compilers: generic and optimizing. That means your Javascript is always compiled and run directly as native code."

4. How Do You Monitor Your Logging?

Applications typically log additional data such as exceptions to different data sources. Windows event logs, local files, and SQL databases are most commonly used in production. New applications can take advantage of leveraging big data instead of individual files or SQL.

5. The Widespread Effects of Facebook’s Latest Outage

Every day, hundreds of millions of users access Facebook, either through the site’s homepage, or through widgets and APIs on other sites. So when the social media giant experiences an outage in their service, the ripple effects spread far and wide.
