Ruby is very powerful object-oriented language. new Ruby performance improvement. Working with pure Ruby is really fun and interesting to me. I am the real fan of Ruby language.
Ruby performance improvement
I am working Ruby on Rails for around last four years. There is always I am thinking and all ROR developers are thinking about performance of application.
We always compare Ruby on Rails with PHP, Java, Python, dot net. We came to know that where we are lacking in ROR. Just one issue performance and memory issue.
When we got news about Ruby 1.9 is comming with performance improvement of 63%. Yes, It is not a joke. This is really great news for every ROR developers. Ruby 1.9 and Rails 3.0 is the future of internet.
Now I will talk about Ruby Software engineer who developed and worked on the Ruby 1.9.
Masahiro Kanai, who improved the performance of several methods in Ruby 1.9. He is the age of high school, just 17.
This year, Ruby 1.9 by the Fibonacci sequence of operations (multiple-precision addition) is,
Ruby 1.8 is slower than I realized Mr. Kanai is a challenge to freedom of choice camp Ruby faster.
In front of all the participants had a similar problem occurring, Ruby of type String, Array types (structures that may have an embedded data structure type object itself) and some of the faster method, attention collection. Oden’s is known to be well-covered tongue teachers. Ruby continued even after the camp’s efforts to speed up to approximately some methods to remove the macro in a constant loop of 63 percent to about 8 percent of success in speeding. This patch has been adopted by the community of developers Ruby, Ruby has been incorporated into the trunk (October 5, 2009).
many professional engineers and developers, with patience to hold out that the problem is resolved, probably as a programmer in one or two talents.
Ketai that builds skills and career tips for the professional engineer. Interviewers are already familiar with this series, the Mr. Ikuo Takeuchi, Professor Department of Creative Informatics, Graduate School of Information Science and Engineering, University of Tokyo. This time, who undertook the voluntary and discover if training for a talented programmer.
His mentor was Koichi Sasada (ko1). The performances of the methods he worked have been bumped up 63% in maximum, 8% in average. His patches were applied to Ruby trunk in Oct. 5 this year.
What he did for Ruby Performance tuning?
He took unnecessary macro references out from a loop. Masahiro spotted macros below in array.c, string.c, and struct.c were referred every time Ruby checked whether data was hold in a structure or not. Even though data were constants, Ruby saw the macros to judge data’s presence in every loop.
What I say now more… I am really happy and I can say this is the biggest news of 2010 in IT world.
One thing I want to mention here about Ruby on Rails. This thing is in mind of all ROR developers.
