Webinar: Performance Benchmarking in Julia
Julia Computing Webinar
When: Thu April 29 2021
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm US Eastern
You’ve probably heard that Julia is the fastest modern high-level programming language. But how do you make sure your code is optimized for maximum performance? In this webinar, we’ll look at some of the tools for tuning your code to get the most out of Julia. We’ll examine some of the report tools such as @profile and SnoopCompile.jl, how we define some of our impactful optimization thresholds in Core.Inference, and some of the knobs such as Experimental.@optlevel and @nospecialize. You’ll be hewing down runtimes and compile times with precision in no time. We’ll also discuss some of our plans for future improvements and the ways that we track and eliminate regressions with each release, so that you can upgrade versions with confidence.
Presenter: Jameson Nash, Software Engineer at Julia Computing. Julia language contributor, working on compiler integration, language design, and performance tooling.
