Building Web Stuff in 2018

Performance as a raw metric is nigh meaningless without the context. Every tech stack decision has its tradeoffs, and simply saying “this is more performant” does not make this truth magically disappear.

Cannot agree more on that. People comparing different technologies/languages often forget that in-memory performance differences between Python and Java are negligible compared to network delays both will experience when used in a large scale app.
