We’ve Got You Covered

Posted by Andy Campbell,

Coverage. It's all good. Health care coverage is good. Cell phone coverage is good. Even cloud coverage can provide a nice break from the intensity of the sun's rays sometimes. It should come then as no surprise that good code coverage also gives us that nice warm fuzzy feeling, like... read more >>

Don’t Mock Me! 3

Posted by Andy Campbell,

Hi folks, it's been a long time! Thanks for your patience as we have a lot of great incubating topics to discuss on the blog. Today I am excited to introduce David Hruska, who is the lead developer on an exciting new mocking framework that is part of MATLAB as... read more >>

Additional Ways to Consume the Secret Sauce 1

Posted by Andy Campbell,

For today's blog entry I'd like to introduce Stephen Carter. Stephen is an engineer on the MATLAB Test Frameworks team and has been involved in many exciting new features over the past few releases (and he continues working on more to come!). Stephen was excited to write a post or... read more >>

Today it is my pleasure to introduce my MathWorks colleague Anoush Najarian. Anoush is an engineering manager on the MATLAB performance team and she has been instrumental in many great projects such as the performance testing framework we have been blogging about as well as the significant performance improvements with... read more >>

Performance Review Criteria 3: Scales to the task 1

Posted by Andy Campbell,

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 1

Posted by Andy Campbell,

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 >>
