In many arenas of computing, speed is the name of the game. Being able to compute quickly, generate results immediately, and fetch data instantly are key objectives for mission-critical software products. As code bases grow in size, it is often difficult to identify bottlenecks, the places in software where the most CPU time is spent, and optimize them in order to get that little extra bit of speed. As algorithms get more complex, it is often difficult to determine at a glance which is better suited in a production environment. Fortunately, Komodo IDE is here to help.
