in reply to Efficient programming

If you start with correct, well named and well structured, you may have the opportunity to make it fast and efficient.

The opposite is rarely true.

So:

  • Write a test - to make it correct
  • Write some code - to make it work at all :)
  • Refactor - to make it well structured
  • Profile and Optimize - every once in a while to make it efficient
