Looking for an article on premature optimization

0 like 0 dislike
Many years ago I read an article a guy who back in the 60s (if I confuse nothing) worked as a programmer in the USSR, and he's a very bright examples tells how to and how not to optimize the code. Unfortunately, the link is not preserved. If anyone knows what it is — tell me, please.

My subjective opinion — premature optimization is important only to the obvious flaws of the system (a lot of data, deliberately complex algorithms, too many connections etc) the Rest is to optimize when necessary.
And pre-answer the most common question in this regard: — and what if then it will be harder to do optimization? — Make the architecture so that it was easier (loose coupling, separation of entities etc)
