We attended the AWS San Francisco Summit in April and were really impressed with the breadth and depth of the presentations. A stand out included this talk from Adam Boeglin on optimization. As we prepare to finally commercialize RESTful APIs, it’s clear a few lambda functions need a little tuning; this talk as some great advice towards that end, check it out. I’ve also been diving into Intel code samples, another great resource for optimization. One take home from Adam’s talk was that under certain conditions involving the use of AVX instructions, the clock rate can be scaled back, thus impacting performance.
