Hidden complexity of a routine task: presenting table data in user interface

День 2 /  / Зал 2  /  RU / For practicing engineers

A grid showing data from a relational database table is one of the most common UI components, and everyone has encountered problems with its performance and usability. This talk will show that the apparent simplicity of it covers interesting and not-quite-solved problems demanding knowledge in different fields of math. We'll try to find a balance between speed and convenience while learning to use interpolation search, figuring out what are the Collation Rules, and getting to know how we can «help» the database to extract quickly the data we need.
