In this episode, Adam talks to Jonathan Reinink about strategies for off-loading resource intensive work from your application code and into your database.
- Issues you run into when you do too much work in code instead of in the database
- Why memory usage is just as important as query count
- How being smarter with your database usage can let you avoid hard problems like cache invalidation
- Denormalizing computable data to make it queryable
- Using "where not exists" strategically to improve query performance
- Why the solution to n+1 problems isn't always as simple as eager-loading
- How subqueries work and how you can use them to avoid memory problems when eager-loading
