Adriaan Van Os – Code Optimization
6 September, 2006
As the last presentation for Tuesday, Adriaan Van Os talked about optimizing your code. Adriaan started with the basic advices on profiling (“keep your design simple, worry about optimization later”, and “don’t rely on assumptions – use the profiler”). From there, Adriaan added lots of useful tips which are more specific to the optimization of a Smalltalk application. Adriaan has also extended SUnit with some nifty profiling methods.
