What does TechEmpower have to do with the Framework Benchmarks?
In a March 2013 blog entry, TechEmpower published the results of comparing the performance of several web application frameworks executing simple but representative tasks: serializing JSON objects and querying databases. The community reaction was terrific. TechEmpower received dozens of comments, suggestions, questions, criticisms, and most importantly, GitHub pull requests at the repository TechEmpower set up for this project. Since then, community input has been tremendous and the benchmarks now have regular updates called "rounds" where test implementations are regularly updated, and coverage is expanded.
