HTTP Compression - boost your server’s speed - Improve latency and cost by enabling web-server compression. After reading this post you’ll be able to make a fast impact on your web-servers and improve your site’s performance! REST API (a subset of HTTP) is one of the most popular APIs.
We are all working really hard for making an impact and once in a while there’s an opportunity for making a HUGE impact by a really small effort. After reading this post you’ll be able to make a fast impact on your web-servers and improve your site’s performance!
REST API (a subset of HTTP) is one of the most popular APIs. If you are working in a SaaS company you probably use it as an external API for communicating with your customers and you might also use it internally across your services. At Dynamic Yield we are serving thousands of HTTP requests per second and we strive for easy wins such as latency improvements and cost optimizations. Compression is one of the ways that helped us by simply reducing the bytes on the wire.
Most of the modern web browsers today support compressions such as gzip and Brotli out of the box and asking for it by default.
It turns out that most of the web-server frameworks don’t respect “Accept-Encoding: gzip” header by default and we need to actively enable this compression feature. We will cover few frameworks below.
Enabling compression can help for better latency and cost reduction as fewer bytes are being transferred over the network. Here is what we get:
In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.
Today you're going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates. We gonna use Python OS remove( ) method to remove the duplicates on our drive. Well, that's simple you just call remove ( ) with a parameter of the name of the file you wanna remove done.
In the programming world, Data types play an important role. Each Variable is stored in different data types and responsible for various functions. Python had two different objects, and They are mutable and immutable objects.
Magic Methods are the special methods which gives us the ability to access built in syntactical features such as ‘<’, ‘>’, ‘==’, ‘+’ etc.. You must have worked with such methods without knowing them to be as magic methods. Magic methods can be identified with their names which start with __ and ends with __ like __init__, __call__, __str__ etc. These methods are also called Dunder Methods, because of their name starting and ending with Double Underscore (Dunder).
The OS module is a python module that provides the interface for interacting with the underlying operating system that Python is running.
