i++ vs ++i
The hello world books of programming always start you off with i++, however did you know that i++ comes with a bit of overhead? that's because before you can increment i under the hood a new copy of i must be created. Using ++i you don't need that extra copy. i++ will return the current value before incrementing i. ++i returns the incremented version i. This test is to demonstrate that it's faster to use ++i. Get ready get set update your code!
