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


[EuroPython 2012] Fabio Pliger - 4 JULY 2012 in "Track Lasagne"


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
