No one wants to be stuck in the slow lane, especially Rubyists, but many Rubyists aren’t familiar or comfortable with many benchmarking tools, so their code is slow. Drawing on technical work done on Sprockets internals, Richard Schneeman discusses the slow process of writing fast code, exploring several real-world performance optimizations using use stackprof and other low level profiling tools as well as benchmark-ips and simple bash scripts that look strange but make your code faster by fixing performance problems. Richard then rewinds to show how these slow spots were found and fixed. Join Richard to “C” how fast your Ruby can “Go.”
