When it comes to web performance we talk about compression, minifying, cache control, CDN, sprites, optimizing images and mobile friendly payloads. Why not apply the same techniques to how your application accesses your data? This presentation we will show you how you can make the same simple optimizations to improve performance accessing your data.
