Code efficiency is a broad term used to depict the reliability, speed and programming methodology used in developing codes for an application. Code efficiency is directly linked with algorithmic efficiency and the speed of runtime execution for software. It is the key element in ensuring high performance. The goal of code efficiency is to reduce resource consumption and completion time as much as possible with minimum risk to the business or operating environment. The software product quality can be accessed and evaluated with the help of the efficiency of the code used.
Code efficiency plays a significant role in applications in a high-execution-speed environment where performance and scalability are paramount.
One of the recommended best practices in coding is to ensure good code efficiency. Well-developed programming codes should be able to handle complex algorithms.
Recommendations for code efficiency include:
