How We Sped Up Unit Test Performance by 10x at Qri

Hi all,

I’m linking to a blog post on optimizing unit test performance of qri (built on IPFS, written with go) in case it may be helpful to others.

From a Dustin, a qri dev:

“A few months into [improving the stability and especially the performance of our application backend], I was especially pained at how slow our entire unit test suite was taking to run - up to nearly 5 minutes on my machine…I’m providing here a basic description of how the process went, providing some insight into how performance improvement works to help others with speeding up their own projects.”
