My notes on Data Driven Design for Game Development

Key Points:

Only read needed inputs
Write to linear array
Loop over all the data
Actual code unchanged(Object Oriented Design)
Code separated

Notes:
Optimize for data first then code
Most code is likely bound by memory access
Not everything needs to be an object
Pre-format. Source data and native data doesn’t need to be the same

Sources:

Data Locality
