The brilliant comic XKCD perfectly describes my feelings about standards in performance work with this simple cartoon:

standardsThere are many paths to the top of the performance mountain. If, whatever you believe is the right way to do performance work, gets you to the top then go with that.


But, while climbing the mountain, keep your eyes open and notice what the other climbers are doing. If you see some cool climbing trick, learn it. Whenever possible, share what you know and help those that are struggling. If you are struggling, that is often natures way of telling you to open your mind other options, opinions, pathways, and climbing techniques.

It is not about the dogma, its about getting the work done and keeping the users happy.
