Practical guide to kill optimization, testing and other sw. project beasts

A session at EuroPython 2012

Wednesday 4th July, 2012

9:00am to 10:30am (CET)

Optimization, testing, tunning and design in sw. project can be both heaven or hell for a sw. development project. Python provides many tools to deal with these topics but by theirselves they could not be enough. The talk tries to expose techniques, self failures/success and practical tips and hints to make the right choice at the right time.

This talk will expose optimization, testing, tunning patterns ( and other critical topics ) of a python project and try to analyze the options python provides ( such as packages, techiniques and patterns/anti-patterns ) to deal with them. There is not one true way to deal with these topics and the main goal of the talks is to provide practical examples/techniques and create an active discussion with the public.

Main discussion topics:

  • Testing ( modules and techniques )
  • Optimization and performance ( analysis of the problem, profiling and tuning techniques )
  • Debugging
  • Deployment and automation
  • Python traps
