A Walk Along the Complexity-Performance Curve

Monday Apr 8 / 10:35AM BST

Software performance and complexity are related. It’s common for refactoring to introduce unanticipated regressions, and for performance optimisations to attract scrutiny in code review; how much performance improvement is worth a perceived loss of readability?

Opening the Box: Diagnosing Operating-System Task-Scheduler Behavior on Highly Multicore Machines

Monday Apr 8 / 11:45AM BST

An operating system task scheduler is responsible for placing tasks on cores and for selecting which task is allowed to run, at what time. As such, the scheduler is a critical component of any operating system and has a major impact on application performance.

Practical Benchmarking: How To Detect Performance Changes in Noisy Results

Monday Apr 8 / 03:55PM BST

Finding statistically significant changes in performance results has always been challenging but now that most of our code runs on hardware and infrastructure we don't own, we need methods and tools for detecting performance changes in noisy data.
