Finding and fixing performance bugs in real-world software is a tricky task. It involves exploration and experimentation. During this talk, you will discover several performance issues found while working on Dotty as well as tools used to diagnose those issues.

Areas to be covered include application specific and low-level performance counters as well as micro-benchmarking and regression testing. This talk is not Scala-specific and should apply to most statically typed languages on HotSpot.

The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
