January Talk: Peter Steinbach "The Performance Addict's toolbox"

Hello Performance Addicts,

Peter was so kind to jump in for our first talk of the year.
C++ programmers care about performance in every minute of their work-life. As a matter of fact, the central differentiating criterion for using C++ in a software project is speed almost exclusively.
But how do we measure it? What tools are out there to help us measure the performance for a given code snippet inside a larger project.
What tools are out there to judge the performance of new algorithms or of our collaborators recent contribution? In this talk I would like to address these questions and provide demonstrations and experience report from the field.
I'll discuss layman tools as well as open-source tools and finish with proprietary tools. With this talk, I hope to motivate a more vivid discussion in the C++ community on how we measure the speed of our implementations.
This will be an improved version of Peter's Meeting C++ 2017 talk. And you will be able to ask your questions afterwards!

Date: Thursday, 11. January 2018
Start: 20:00
End: 21:30 (continued discussions with a beer)
Place: Studentenclub Wu5, August-Bebel-Straße 12, 01219 Dresden

Have a relaxing Christmas holiday and a good start into 2018!
