The first meetup of 2019 will be on profiling. Writing software can become painful very quickly when you run into performance issues, and it is all too easy to blindly optimise a program without analysing it first to pin down where the issues are. Ernesto Ocampo will demonstrate several techniques for measuring resource usage and running time to show you just where to focus your optimisations.
Ernesto is a senior software engineer at Genomics (www.genomicsplc.com), an Oxford based company that uses genetics to transform drug development and improve healthcare. He works on their analysis platform, creating data pipelines and services that enable robust, reliable, and scalable data analysis.
The talk is 30 minutes long and will start at 19:15, followed by questions and discussion.
