But I'd say that 99.999% of today's programmers have no fucking clue what code optimization really means..

CPU power is cheap, let the compiler optimize what it can, take care of larger bottlenecks, and who cares? The rapid development we have now allows us to progress at an amazing rate because it usually doesn't matter if we waste a few cycles. You can continue to do F1 at the edges, but the mass in the middle is fine with a Civic.
