Notifications from MATLAB 2

Waiting for a computer or cluster to finish a task is about as exciting as watching paint dry. XKCD even has a comic about it. MATLAB developers often deal with heavy computational loads, often... read more >>

Comma Separated Goodness 6

Hi folks, today I'd like to introduce ChangQing Wang. ChangQing is the lead developer on MATLAB's performance framework, and in addition to all the great performance testing features he has delivered, he has also found a really easy way to integrate performance results into Jenkins. Check it out!... read more >>

Small Fibs Eventually Become Large Fibs – Another exercise in scaling 6

OK, I had way too much fun writing that last blog post exploring algorithmic scaling. I want to explore this a bit more with a some "real" code, and what is more real than a function to calculate the... read more >>

Performance Review Criteria 3: Scales to the task 1

To scale or not to scale. That is the question. When talking about algorithmic complexity, the answer to said question is usually an important one. No matter what the constant factors are that affect your algorithm's speed, poor scaling performance severely limits the scope of the problems you can solve. How do you measure your code's runtime complexity? If you don't have a good method for this (or even if you do!) then once again the performance testing framework is on your side. I was amazed when I learned of this one weird trick to measure the complexity of my algorithms.... read more >>

Performance Review Criteria 2: Sticks to Solid Principles 2

We saw last time how we can use the performance testing framework to easily see the runtime differences between multiple competing algorithms. This can be done without needing to learn about the philosophies and guiding principles of the framework, indeed you don't even need to know that you are using a performance test framework or that the script you are writing is actually even considered a "test".... read more >>

Performance Review Criteria 1: Peer Comparison 4

Have you ever wondered how to compare the relative speed of two snippets of MATLAB code? Who am I kidding? Of course, we all have. I am just as sure that you already have a solution for this. I know... read more >>
