Sven is a Ph.D. student in Potsdam. He's researching energy-aware operating systems and how to control the energy demand of memory operations.
In his free time he mentors the local CoderDojo to teach kids the marvels of computing. And you can meet him from time to time at FOSS meet-ups on energy-efficiency in and around Berlin.
The energy consumption of computer systems are of increasing interest. But it is easy to shoot yourself in the foot while measuring your software. In this talk you will learn about different ways of assessing your software's energy demand, basic mistakes in measurements and how to avoid them.
