|Found this article on The Code Project about improving source code optimization on the likes of Google & Yahoo. Some of the ideas are the complete opposite of "good programming practices" all programmers learn in their college courses, but you can't please everyone, right?
Google and Yahoo! know that speeding pages to their users is crucial. Both companies have invested millions of dollars in the server capacity and software enhancements that it takes to quickly serve search results to millions of users everyday. However, the optimizations that these companies perform do not stop at infrastructure investments. They optimize the delivery of their data right down to the data itself.
