Geek Reading February 19, 2015

Leading off today is Microsoft announcing support for asm.js to the Windows 10 JavaScript engine. Traditionally, IE performance around JavaScript, JSON and XML has been lagging the other browsers, so this could be some good news. Ayende @ Rahien brings us another installment of his performance series, this one focusing on the performance affects of unnecessary deserialization. Continuing with the performance information, High Scalability lets everyone know about a free book about parallel programming. If you have real issues with performance in a large application, this will be a good book to pick up.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
