> Hi,
> I'm happy to share that the next Web Perf Hero award (for 2023 Q4) goes to
> TK-999, in recognition of their contributions, which made a huge positive
> impact on the performance of Wikimedia software.
> TK-999 worked on improving MediaWiki’s autoloading mechanism <
> https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/853972> (
> https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T274041) specifically for classes which
> have been namespaced, by including them in the classmap. This means our
> autoloader will not spend significant amounts of time searching for files
> in directories, but rather just do a direct lookup. This approach is
> particularly optimized for speed and as a result, Wikipedia’s backend
> response time gained a 20% increase in the portion of requests that
> complete within 50ms.
> This award is given once a quarter, and manifests as a Phabricator badge.
