Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Performance Zone (March 27 - April 03). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Geek Reading March 26, 2015

  • MIT News announces that Michael Stonebraker wins the Turing Award. He is one of the leading database researchers and the award is probably overdue. Valeria Maltoni, writing at Conversation Agent, talks about taking good advice, not just listening to it. There are a lot of development articles today as well. In particular, the Dart team decided to focus on compiling to JavaScript instead of trying to make Dart work in all of the browsers. With the coming updates to JavaScript, this could be an interesting development.

2. Performance Issue Considerations for Microservices APIs

  • It isn’t possible to create any sort of application that doesn’t experience performance issues at some point. Performance actually takes in a lot of territory, but most developers worry about reliability and speed the most.

3. Everything You Need to Know About Scaling MySQL: Customer Issues With MySQL

  • During the previous entries in this series, we discussed the various struggles that scaling a legacy MySQL database can cause and the options e-commerce sites have in combating those issues.

4. Cross-language Benchmarking – Gradle Loves Native Binaries!

  • As a C++ developer who wants to participate in a performance challenge, I want a framework that outputs numbers that can be compared with other benchmark results

5. Node.js and io.js Monitoring Support

  • Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources.
