We all love speed, code speed that is! In this podcast we delve into code optimizations, and what does it mean to optimize for speed. We go over what is the mind-state that you need as you optimize code and offer sneaky shortcuts that allows 10-fold improvement with very little code change (Caching, or pregenerating, or timed-updates). More importantly we go over the process on defining when you have "arrived" at a good optimization point, and hopefully help you optimize what is really important (measuring for performance). If you need to scale up/out and around, listen to this episode!

In this podcast we talk about the Model-View-Controller pattern (and is prettier cousin, the Model-View-Presenter), and go over how to go about implementing the MVC/MVP Pattern (really, what to instantiate first, and how to wire the whole thing). We also cover the caveats of implementing the MVC, including escaped references in construction, and making the view alway update from the model state. Lastly we talk about where to store view information (such as window size and colors, etc. Hint: not in the model). In all, if you ever needed to touch MVC code, this will help you light the path to awesome interaction! (and ease of unit testing)
