"This workstation is deep in the heart of time
bandit thief territory."
Time-thieves delight in stealing your seconds, so when they move into your software, you must protect your time from their sticky fingers. Your seconds can be put to better use than waiting on a loading screen! We looked at slow asymptotic time complexity and slow database access in Part 1, but there are more temporal robbers living in your software. Learn their modus operandi to keep your time safe.
Time-thieves will do their best to steal your precious seconds whenever you build software, but now that you know their sneaky tricks, you can lay down the law. Your time is valuable. Protect it! Go watch that movie, build your artificial lifeform, and save the world because if you pursue these thieves one-by-one, your time will remain your own and the people who use your application will thank you.
