in reply to Is Performance Overrated?

If someone totally new to programming were to ask me for advice, I think I'd say "performance is for suckers."

Let me offer a variation: "Make sure you understand what's important to the people who are paying you, and don't sucker yourself into spending their time working on things that aren't important to them. That's what your own time is for."
