Software Verification and Performance Analysis using Valgrind
by Stephen Dum
Valgrind is a collection of tools to validate your (typically C or C++ compiled) program. It can validate correct usage of memory, profile your program, profile heap usage and verify proper thread usage. This talk gives an overview of valgrind and how it can be used, with emphasis on memory usage verification and profiling.
About Steve: Spent decades dealing with large projects (multi-million lines of code) writing code, automating build processes and automated testing of the code.
Many will head to the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne after the meeting.
